Britain's Jewish Community Statistics 2012


Publication Date

November 2013



Presents the latest data on births, marriages, religious divorces, and burials and cremations, in the UK Jewish community. Conludes that the community is experiencing a period of natural increase. Argues that the British Jewish community now contains two very different sub-communities: The strictly Orthodox part of the community continues to exhibit characteristics (a younger age profile, earlier marriage and higher birth rate) which ensure that it is growing at a significant rate, and that it comprises an increasing proportion of the Jewish population of the UK. The ‘mainstream’ community, meanwhile, is continuing to experience a gradual decline in size.
