The Fertility of the Jewish People: A Contemporary Overview

By Paul Ritterband

Avraham Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, 1992

In Jewish Population Studies 23 (World Jewish Population: Trends and Policies), 93-105. The Diaspora communities have reached fertility levels that are below replacement and the Jewish fertility levels in Israel are significantly above replacement. This conclusion is not based upon ideology but on the reports in the scientific literature. The question is not whether or not the Jewish communities will decline, but rather how quickly they will decline.
