Jewish Population Study Report

We are pleased to share the results of our 2018 Jewish Population Study. Much has changed in the world since we completed our last comprehensive study in 2005, and we undertook this new study to:

  • Provide critical information concerning who we are, what we are thinking, and where we are headed
  • Identify the critical needs in our community
  • Help us create a roadmap for all Jewish communal organizations to serve Jewish needs and interests for years to come

The study itself is based on 1,200 interviews, randomly sourced and conducted from January 17 to March 27, 2018. The lead demographer on this project is Ira Sheskin, Director of the Jewish Demography Project at the University of Miami. Mr. Sheskin has conducted over 50 major Jewish community studies for Jewish Federations throughout the country.
