    By Joe Berkofsky

    October 10, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    This is the American Jewish world, by the numbers, as revealed in the just-released National Jewish Population Survey 2000-2001 (NJPS)

    The Jewish population now stands at 5.2 million, down 5.45 percent from 5.5 million in 1990.

  • Surveying ‘America’s Jewish Freshmen’

    By Rachel Brand

    August 22, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    When Adam Bergman researched colleges toward the end of his senior year at Milken High School, he looked very closely at the quality of their soccer teams and not so closely at the size of their Jewish populations.

    "I don't consider myself religious at all. I have never chosen a...

  • California, Here They Come

    By Tom Tugend

    June 20, 2002 | 8:00 pm

    Los Angeles, founded in 1781 as one of a string of Spanish settlements along the Pacific coast, was nearly 60 years old when Jacob Frankfort arrived, apparently the first Jewish resident.

    By 1850, Los Angeles had less than 2,000 residents, of whom only eight were Jews. All of them...

  • Conquest by Birthrate

    By Simon Carroll

    December 6, 2001 | 7:00 pm

    A leading Arab think tank is backing an old strategy -- to defeat the Jewish State from within by encouraging the growth of its Arab population.

    The prime proponent of the conquest-by-demography theory is Wahid Abdel Maguid, chief editor of the Arab Strategic Report, the publication...

  • Is Demography Destiny?

    By Rob Eshman

    April 5, 2001 | 7:59 pm

    The new U.S. census figures have generated banner headlines this month, though no one seems to have a clue what those numbers portend. The big news, of course, is that America's Latino population has ballooned almost 60 percent in the past decade, surpassing 35 million. More than 43...

  • Standing by the Data

    By Pini Herman

    September 14, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    The counting of peoples and characteristics is a science and art, as well as a fairly expensive and labor-intensive undertaking when done properly. Demography is often not an easily understood topic. It's common to find inflated and even improbable population estimates in major...

  • Israeli Jews to Outnumber Those in U.S.

    By Gustav Niebuhr

    September 14, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Jews in Israel will outnumber Jews in the United States in two decades, part of a shift in Jewish population by which Israel will become home to a majority of the world's Jews by 2050, says a study in the new edition of the "American Jewish Year Book."

    The study concludes that trends...

  • Flawed Methodology

    By Rabbi Yitzchok Adlerstein

    September 14, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    No one seems to believe what Pini Herman does. While all observers - particularly outside of the Orthodox community - take for granted the phenomenal growth of the Orthodox, he continues to stand behind the seriously flawed methods he used in the Los Angeles Jewish Population Survey...

  • Setting the Record Straight

    By Anthony Gordon

    September 7, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    As authors of the oft-cited research study titled "Will Your Grandchild Be Jewish?" we have more than a passing interest and familiarity with the Jewish demography of Los Angeles and America. The following points outline some of the fundamental flaws in the L.A. Jewish Population...

  • Growing or Shrinking?

    By Julie G Fax

    July 6, 2000 | 8:00 pm

    Rabbi Boruch Shlomo Cunin can't stop laughing.
    No really, I tell him, according to the numbers, the Orthodox community is shrinking.
    He takes a deep breath.
    "I'm trying not to get upset here," says Cunin, sovereign of West Coast Chabad for the past 36 years. "But you have to be blind...

  • Hot Propositions

    By Eric Roth

    March 2, 2000 | 7:00 pm

    California's ballot initiatives have been making laws and national headlines since 1911. Designed by Governor Hiram Johnson to take politics directly to the people and over the heads of a corrupt legislature, the initiative process often focuses on populist issues. California voters...
  • The Jewish Future

    By Marlene Adler Marks

    December 9, 1999 | 7:00 pm

    I have seen the Jewish future and, to my surprise, it still belongs to the Baby Boomers. By now I'd guess that Boomers would happily cede attention and civic responsibility to Gen Xers and Gen J but nothing doing. One in three Jews today are between ages 35-53, and the needs and...
  • News of the Week

    May 20, 1999 | 8:00 pm

    Most of the people I know in Israel voted for Barak; a few preferred Netanyahu. But on the part of almost everyone, outcome aside, there was a tremendous sense of excitement, of participating in what felt like an intense moment of change.

    In Israel, after all, 80 percent of the...

    By  Orit Arfa

    July 16, 1998 | 8:00 pm

    If the pursuit of peace in the Middle East will not unite the parties concerned, then one life-sustaining element may. Israeli, Arab and American researchers and engineers have come together to find ways to produce more potable water for agricultural...

    Counting Jews

     

    By 2003, Israel will finally have fulfilled thedreams of its founders when it overtakes the United States to becomehome to the largest number of Jews in the world.

  • The Results Are In

    By Ruth Stroud

    January 29, 1998 | 7:00 pm

    Rumors of the imminent demise of theJewish population of Los Angeles are a little premature. For yearswe've been hearing that the rate of intermarriage in Los Angeles islikely among the worst in the nation -- probably more than 50percent, perhaps as high as 70 percent in some areas.
