Leaders of nearly 200 Jewish federations provided estimates of their communities; local rabbis and other informed Jewish communal leaders provided estimates for small communities without federations. I determining Jewish population, communities count both affiliated and non affiliated residents who are core Jews, as defined in NJPS 1990. Non-Jews are not included in the estimates below. Only persons residing in a community for the majority of the year are included in local counts.
