What you really need to ask is why so many Jews love Obama...
I can only speak for the Jews I know, Israeli’s. They overwhelmingly were afraid of Obama and what he represents. While I was there in Israel on the first vote for Obama it was estimated that 78% voted Against him. It was not that they liked McCain, McCain was rarely mentioned. They saw Obama for what he was.
NYC Jews? Its only heresay to me. Perhaps its something in the water.

The US is full of left leaning Jews because they are predominantly Euro Jews that are historically socialist/communist. In all reality, the socialist and communist movements were started in Europe by Jews: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Marx
They are big government socialists, having this philosophy inculcated into their culture. They live in the big cities which tend to be more liberal, and they are disproportionately represented in certain occupations which are very liberal. Bottom line: The Jon Stewart's and Barbara Streisand's are the norm, not the exception.
Israel too is an example of this where the entire idea of the Kibbutz is essentially socialist with its big government social programs and state apparatus. The difference is that some there might be realizing that Obama is a threat to their interests and national security specifically. However, it is the socialist philosophy that attracts so many Jews to the Democrats.
