Trends in U.S. Jewish Education: National Jewish Population Study Findings

By Fred Massarik

American Jewish Committee (AJC), 1977

With changing birthrates, and consequent variations in the demographic character of the United States Jewish population, the potential number of children (as well as older youth and adults) who may avail themselves of Jewish education can vary significantly. Therefore, to assess qualitative changes over time, one must consider not only the total number, but also the proportion enrolled in all types of Jewish schools in a specified time period. The findings presented here take this into account, and for the first time, make possible the examination of appropriately adjusted relative enrollment levels in historical perspective.
