While much of the world is watching President Obama's visit to Israel closely, the trip has special meaning in the New York and New Jersey area – home to one of the largest Jewish communities outside of Israel. 

But there is a wide range of opinion when it comes to how American Jews feel the Israeli-U.S. relationship should play out.

“More liberal Jews want to see more action on the peace process, maybe a bit more engagement on America’s part,” said Andrew Silow-Carroll, Editor in Chief of New Jersey Jewish News. “And more conservative Jews want America to back off and kind of let Israel make its own decisions.”
