How Many Jews in New York City?

By Jack Diamond

American Jewish Congress, January 1978

The author attempts to debunk the widespread assumption that there are over a million Jews in New York City. Instead, through the utilization of Bureau of Census studies of the New York City area and other population health surveys, the author concludes that there are probably only 750,000 Jews in New York City. Finally, at the conclusion of this brief article, Diamond remarks that this figure will likely "dwindle," and thus ends by asking a few pertinent questions, such as when will Jewish organizations give priority to demographic problems?
