CBNNews.com - JERUSALEM, Israel - According to Rabbi Yosef Greenberg, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin is a staunch ally of the Jewish people.
Greenberg, who lived in Alaska for the past 17 years, said Palin's support for Israel has never wavered.
"Based on my personal acquaintance with Governor Palin, I can confidently say that if she is elected, the Jewish people and the State of Israel will have a great friend and admirer in the White House," Greenberg told the Israeli daily Haaretz.
A few years ago, during her tenure as mayor of Wasilla, Greenberg said Palin had a good relationship with the city's Jewish community.
When they dedicated a new synagogue, she attended the ceremony, though the congregation hadn't thought to invite her.
As governor, she passed a resolution in May during Israel's 60th Anniversary celebration, affirming Alaska's support of the Jewish state.
"She's a very impressive woman with a dedicated sense of purpose," Greenberg said, adding that "she is constantly working for the greater good."
