Jewish Population in the United States, 2007

By Ira M. Sheskin, Arnold Dashefsky

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 2007

Based upon a summation of local Jewish community studies, the estimated size of the American Jewish community in 2007 is 6,443,805. In order to develop our estimate, Jewish local communities were contacted via the internet. For those communities that did not reply, estimates from previous years have been maintained. The estimates derive from two sources: scientific estimates based upon some type of scientific study of a community; and informant estimates based on information provided by local informants on the number of households on the local Jewish federation's mailing list and the number of people who belong to local Jewish organizations and synagogues. All estimates are for Jews, both in households and institutions, and do not include non-Jews living in households with Jews.
