My husband's ex-boss was like that, and most of his friends, with whom we were casually acquainted.
His wife and children (he was divorced) remained in Israel full time, though.
They're just regular white guys, as far as I'm concerned, and white guys have run everything since time immemorial.
They're usually pretty liberal, so I tend to like them being influential in politics and social issues.
I'm glad, for instance, that there are more Jews than Protestants on the Supreme Court.
Should they be influencing our foreign policy with "campaign donations", which you stated they are doing, however?
That doesn't seem right.
If a bunch of wealthy American Islamics contributed money to politicians' campaigns, would we support Palestine and nuke Israel?
I'd like to think politicians are able to think for themselves, not just whore themselves out to the highest bidder. If that's the case, nobody anywhere is safe, including the jews.

I publish pretty regularly, in fact, especially here lately. Short fiction.
But I'm not "professional" in the sense that I make a living at it.
The amount of money I've made off my writing is negligible.
I work full time at another occupation.
