Summary

Just 0.2 percent of the world’s population identifies with Judaism — 14 million people. Ashkenazi Jews of German descent account for 75 percent of the world’s Jewish population, and Sephardic Jews from the Iberian peninsula account for approximately 20 percent.1 Israel is the only nation with a Jewish religious majority, but the United States and Israel have a near equal number of Jewish citizens;2 four out of every five Jews worldwide live in either the United States or Israel.3 Jews account for approximately 80 percent of the Israeli adult population.4 In a study conducted in both the United States and Israel, 20 percent of Jews in the United States considered themselves to be secular, or nonreligious, though they all identified themselves to be Jewish. In contrast, virtually all Israeli Jews claimed to be both culturally and religiously Jewish.5 Show References
