Prospecting the Jewish Future: Population Projections (2000-2080)

By Sergio DellaPergola, Uzi Rebhun, Mark Tolts

American Jewish Committee (AJC), Jewish Publication Society (JPS), 2000

This study articulates different scenarios for the development of Jewish population worldwide up to the year 2080. The results are presented in full awareness that forecasting, in demography as in any other field, tends to underestimate the range of possible developments. Globalization is an intriguing phenomenon whose consequences are not fully clear, but has resulted in the growing political, economic, and technological integration between different regions. If world society is becoming more fluid and less stable and predictable, this is even truer of world Jewry, given its wide geographical spread and dependence on external circumstances.
