Annual Assessment--The Jewish People: Situation and Dynamics

Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI), Summer 2014

JPPI's Annual Assessment seeks to create a baseline for establishing the status and well-being of different Jewish communities around the world. It seeks to measure whether the trends are positive or negative in five dimensions: geopolitics, demography, identity, communal bonds, and material resources. The assessment is mixed on these measures. Israeli demographics appear favorable because of higher birthrates and increased potential of Aliyah from Europe – which reflects negative pressures there. Jewish identity, especially in the United States, is tending somewhat negatively because of a weakening sense of belonging and commitment to the Jewish people among the younger demographic. Communal bonds are strengthening given stronger commitments to enhanced dialogues. Geopolitically, the assessment also tends toward a more negative conclusion.
