Key trends in the British Jewish community: A review of data on poverty, the elderly and children

By Sarah Abramson, David Graham, Jonathan Boyd

Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR), April 2011

This report, commissioned at the request of, and sponsored by the Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation, provides an overview of existing reliable demographic data related to three issues within the British Jewish community: poverty (including indigence and distress), the elderly (including care, welfare and support) and children (including care, welfare and support and education). It does not contain any new data; rather, it provides a summary of the most important findings in the research on Jews in Britain related to these three areas. Due to the fact that the themes are broad and often overlapping, this report is structured in such a way as to ensure that each issue is examined individually, although not necessarily independently of other related topics. The report also endeavors to provide a broader British societal context to the central findings presented.
