2.1 million Haredi Jews (strictly Orthodox) live around the world today, constituting about 14% of the total Jewish global population, with Israel and the USA accounting for about 92% of them. The report – a first estimation of the global Haredi population - projects that this population could double in size by the year 2040.
A June 2020 report by the UK's Office for National Statistics provided the first serious academic analysis of the impact of COVID-19 on religious minorities in England and Wales. In this short paper, the JPR research team considers the findings and their implications for the Jewish population.
This report documents for the first time the giving patterns of British Jews and their support for a wide range of both Jewish and other charities and establishes a strong relationship between religious outlook and giving patterns.
A statistical study supported by Partnerships for Jewish Schools (PaJeS), using an empirical approach to predict future levels of demand for mainstream Jewish secondary schools in and around London, in order to support educational planning.
JPR’s COVID-19 survey examines the effects of the pandemic on the lives of Jews across the UK. In the first of a series of short papers examining the findings, this report looks at how comfortable Jews feel about returning to in-person Jewish activities and events.
A detailed analysis of the political implications of differences in growth rates between secular and religious populations in Western Europe. It discusses how demographic factors can lead to a reversal of the secularisation process and to growing religiosity in society.
A qualitative study, based on research conducted with undergraduate Jewish students in the UK, looking at how they understand their Jewish identity, their experiences of being a Jew on campus, and the types of activities that most engage them.
This study is based on a single question in JPR’s 2002 survey of the Jewish community of London and the South East, in which nearly 3,000 respondents were asked to choose between four options: Religious, Somewhat Religious, Somewhat Secular and Secular.
The survey focuses on the interface between Jewish identity and the social and political attitudes of Jews and aims to produce a profile of the community.
This report analyses the holdings of JPR's European Jewish Research Archive (EJRA), highlighting limitations and strengths in research coverage. It concludes with suggestions on developing research on European Jewish populations.
