WASHINGTON -America's leading pro-Israel group prepares to hear tonight from Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.

Trump's previous comments about Israel have created some anxiety among many who will attend the American Israel Public Affairs Committee policy conference this week in Washington.

About 40 rabbis plan to boycott Trump's address, saying his appearance "poses political, moral, and even spiritual quandaries."
