By Sergio DellaPergola, Uziel O. Schmelz

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1989

In Jewish Population Studies (Jewish Education Worldwide: Cross-Cultural Perspectives), 43-68. This chapter reviews selected quantitative aspects of Diaspora Jewish education in the context of an assessment of basic changes in demographic patterns that have a bearing on the availability of children as pupils in Jewish schools. The overall decline in fertility accounts for the reduction in the size of the Jewish school-age population. The study is based on the results of the first Census of Jewish Schools in the Diaspora.
