Never mind: I found it. It’s from the North American Jewish Data Bank. The data was for 2008. You think the Jewish population in New York went from 1.6m to 2m in three years?

I cant believe in certain states like oregon etc. there are so many jewish pple.April 28, 2011 2:11 pm at 2:11 pm #762063Derech HaMelechMember
Speaking of the number of Jews. I noticed that whenever there is an article about Chareidim the same picture with the same 5 chasidim goes up next to the article.
Bloomberg is represented by a picture of himself
Raymond Kelly is represented by a picture of himself
Obama is represented by a picture of himself.
So there is clearly a pattern whereby the pictures represent the actual people who are being discussed in the article.
So I ask you, my fellow CR members:
Who are these 5 Chareidim who seem to be involved in anything and everything Chareidi?April 28, 2011 3:15 pm at 3:15 pm #762064☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I found this. If you want my source, Google the sentence which begins The 2010 Statistical Abstract, issued….
How many Jews are there in New York?
The 2010 Statistical Abstract, issued by the US Census Bureau, reports that New York’s Jewish population comprises 1,618,000 people, which represents 8.4% of the state’s population. New York is the state with the highest Jewish population in the US; nearly a quarter of the all Jews in the country are New York residents.
This fact is verified on : May 7, 2010. All facts are verified every 6 month after the last modification.April 28, 2011 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm #762065cherrybimParticipantApril 28, 2011 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #762066TikkunHatzotMember
Derech HaMelech, are you talking about the articles of the Neturei Karta. Because I’ve only counted 5 of them in pictures & videos for the past few years…those guys travel so much that it’s hard to understand when they get time to study Torah….
Cherrybim, adding to what you said, there are also many non-jewish Christians in America that actually claim to be Jews. I’ve actually talked to a few of them; they believe that they are Jewish, even though they have NO Jewish lineage.
Furthermore, 1 of my (orthodox) friends was in a carribean island & he told them that he was Jewish. He said that they were ready to kill him, because they (the islanders of African descent) were the true Jews.April 6, 2017 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #1252392zaltzvasserParticipant
kenaynaminahoora. Anyone have updated numbers?April 6, 2017 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #1252462zahavasdadParticipant
The problem with counting Jews , is how do you count them?
Usually these surveys in “expanded Jewish population” which includes people who are not Halachic jews (ie patrilinial “jews”)April 6, 2017 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1252515Lilmod UlelamaidParticipant
ZD – that’s an interesting point. I wonder who does these surveys and how they do them.
