From the Director
I am very pleased to share our latest 2020 US Jewish population estimates and to announce the launch of a new American Jewish Population Project website.
Using our method of data synthesis, AJPP estimates the US Jewish population at 7.6 million people, or 2.4% of the total US population. This number includes: 4.9 million adults who identify their religion as Jewish, 1.2 million Jewish adults who identify with no religion, and 1.6 million Jewish children.
