A survey released by the STAR project (Synagogues: Transformation and Renewal) finds that a plurality of rabbis, from all religious streams, name Hillary Clinton as the presidential candidate most supportive of Israel.

Asked which candidate is most supportive of Israel, 41 percent said they were unsure. Clinton polled highest, at 22 percent, followed by former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a Republican, at 16 percent, and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) at 3 percent. Clinton also was ranked as most supportive of Jewish causes in America in general with 24 percent, followed again by Giuliani with 10 percent and Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) with 3 percent.
