Abstract

The following report presents data on community statistics for Britain’s Jewishpopulation compiled by the Community Policy Research Group (CPRG) at the Boardof Deputies of British Jews.These data are collected on behalf of the whole community. It is the only survey to dothis on an annual basis and therefore the data are unique in being able to showchanges over time. From the point of view of community planners the data representthe most up-to-date portrayal of the Jewish community in Britain.Although they are indicative of actual demographic trends, they only represent thoseJews who have chosen, or whose families have chosen, to associate themselves withthe Jewish community through a formal Jewish act, i.e. circumcision,1 marriage in asynagogue, dissolution of marriage by a Beth Din, Jewish burial or cremation.Consequently, Jews who have not chosen to identify in these ways do not appear inthis report.Further, it should be recognised that these data are collected regardless of institutionaldenomination. They therefore include some individuals who would not be recognisedas Jewish by all sections of the community.
