Did you know that there are nearly 250,000 Jewish adults and children living in Greater Boston? That less than half of them identity as Reform or Conservative? Or that approximately two-thirds of Boston’s Jews have been to Israel?
These were among the findings of the most recent Greater Boston Jewish Community Study, which is commissioned every 10 years by CJP to better understand our community and plan for the future.
The 2015 study shows that we are increasingly diverse in our backgrounds, in our ways of engaging, and in the sources from which we derive meaning. Many of us are connecting to Judaism, Israel, and institutions like synagogues and schools in new ways.
