Toward a Concept of Jewish Population Policy: Mechanisms of Population Change and Significant Interventions

By Sergio DellaPergola

Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI), 2005

In the light of current population trends in Israel and the Diaspora, policy analyses and operational suggestions are urgently needed by decision-makers. In this paper we review some of the main relationships between major determinants and major consequences of demographic processes affecting contemporary Jewry. In addition we outline some mechanisms of action aimed at strengthening Jewish identification, and try to designate the main goals for Jewish population policies. Main issues for policy evaluation and intervention touch upon Jewish identification, family patterns, socioeconomic change and the implications of demography for Israel's territorial definition in a prolonged situation of military and political conflict.
