Report During High Holy Days shows Jewish Population at 15.2 Million Worldwide

As Jews gather together in the Holy Day season—Rosh Hashanah this week, Yom Kippur next week, then Sukkot after that—the Jewish Agency reports there are 15.2 million Jews worldwide—an increase of 100,000 from last year.

Almost half of the world’s Jewry calls Israel home—45.3 percent or 6.93 million people. The United States is home to the next largest group—about 6 million Jews live in America. The rest are scattered among the nations—France (446,000), Canada (393,500), Britain (292,000), Argentina (175,000), Russia (150,000), Germany (118,000), and Australia (118,000). There are about 27,000 Jews who live in Arab or Muslim countries such as Turkey, Iran, Morocco, and Tunisia.

Professor Sergio Della Pergola of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University compiled the data for the Jewish Agency report. The stats were based on self-identification as Jewish. If you consider all those having at least one Jewish grandparent (the minimum requirement for citizenship in Israel), there are an estimated 25.3 million Jews worldwide—which is still just a fraction of Earth’s population--.3 percent.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
