European Jewish Demography Unit

European Jewish Demography Unit

Established in January 2019, JPR’s Demography Unit is dedicated to generating data about Jewish populations in Europe to help support community development across the continent. Currently supported by the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe, it is led by JPR Senior Research Fellow, Dr Daniel Staetsky, and chaired by the world’s leading expert in Jewish demography, Professor Sergio DellaPergola.

The Unit seeks to produce data to help provide insights in several key areas, including elderly care, the development of Jewish schools, and the need for educational and cultural facilities. It will be issuing specialist papers focusing on specific countries and major demographic issues, such as migration, fertility, mortality and intermarriage, and publishing up-to-date Jewish population counts for every country in Europe on an annual basis.

For a more detailed overview of the unit’s purpose, see Why European Jewish Demography? A foundation paper, published in July 2019. To discuss our programme in more detail, contact the Director of the Unit, Dr Daniel Staetsky, at
