Jewish Population by State

The ambiguity of the word “Jewish” can make it particularly tough to pin down its population, particularly when those who are ethnically or culturally Jewish are not religiously Jewish. The Pew Research Center estimates there to be 5.8 million adults, or 2.4% of all adults in the United States, who identify as Jewish (either by ethnicity or religion). That can be broken down to include 4.2 million adults who identify as Jewish by religion (or 1.7%) and 1.5 million “Jews of no religion” (or 0.6%).
