UJA-Federation of New York, January 2013

The eight-county New York area — the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester — continues to be home to the greatest concentration of Jewish people of any metropolitan area in the United States.1 And unlike the previous decade, this population is growing. New York’s Jewish community is highly diverse in many dimensions — including national origin, types of Jewish identification and commitment, social class, gender, sexual orientation, and race. Many New York Jews live in conditions of significant economic stress and need for assistance.
