World Jewish Population Figures Are Updated

(Continued from Page 1)
crease of 110,000 over the
previous year, or a total
current world Jewish
population of 14,396,000.
However, Prof. Leon
Shapiro, of Rutgers Uni-
versity, who compiled the
world statistics, cautions
that "there are no precise
data on Jewish yopula-
tion in the various coun-
tries. The figures pre-
sented represent the best
possible estimates ....
The figures are of vary-
ing degrees of accuracy
and are subject to sub-
stantial margins of er-
ror."
Similarly, the authors of
the demographic report on
Jewish population in the
United States, Alvin Chen-
kin and Maynard Miran, re-
search consultant and asso-
ciate respectively of the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions, warn that two factors
combine to make their total
estimate problematic: "The
extent of the shift to the
'Sun-Belt' states may not
yet be fully reported. On the
other hand, the New York
City area estimate is, in all

likelihood, overstated."
They estimate that the
current U.S. Jewish popula-
tion is 5,860,900, a modest
increase over the previous
year's figure of 5,780,960.
The South and West com-
prise 30.2 percent of the to-
tal, as compared to 29.1 in
1978 and 27.8 in 1977.
The Northeast and
Northcentral states repre-
sent 69.8 percent of the total
Jewish population, as com-
pared to 70.9 and 72.2 per-
cent in 1978 and 1977 re-
spectively. Jews comprise
2.7 percent of the total popu-
lation in the U.S.
Estimating the New
York City Jewish popula-
tion at 1,228,000, a figure
based on the 1970 Na-
tional Jewish Population
Study, the authors point
out that unofficial esti-
mates by the New York
Department of City
Planning show a 13.5
percent drop in the city's
white population be-
tween 1970 and 1977. "An
extrapolation of this fig-
ure to 1979 could reduce
the Jewish population
figure for New York City
to around 1,000,000," they
added.
After the United States,
countries with significantly
large numbers of Jews are:
Israel, 3,135,000; Soviet
Union, 2,666,000; France,
650,000; Great Britain,
410,000; Canada, 305,000;
Argentina, 300,000; Brazil,
150,000; and South Africa,
118,000.
Among the Jewish popu-

lation figures for U.S. cities
listed in the Year Book's ta-
bles are: Greater New York,
1,998,000; Los Angeles

Nursery Adopted
by Toy Company

NEW YORK —
Childcraft, an international,
company which produces
educational toys, has
"adopted" a Pioneer
Women/Naamat day nur-
sery recently established
next to a factory in Talpiot,
Jerusalem.
David Eisenberg, director
general of Childcraft, ex-
plained that one of the pur-
poses of the "adoption" is to
acquaint youngsters with
computers at a very early
age. Under the supervision
of psychologists, counselors
and social workers, the nur-
sery will become an experi-
mental laboratory for the
scientifically-designed edu-
cational toys.
Adjoining the Triumph
Brassiere Co., the day cen-
. ter enables mothers with
pre-school age children to
work there. Pioneer
Women/Naamat is estab-
lishing services for young
children where employment
opportunities exist for
women. On-site day care ad-
jacent to hospitals have
proved successful in
encouraging nurses to re-
turn to work, thus helping
to alleviate a shortage in
that field.

The conscience of chil-
dren is formed by the influ-
ences that surround them; -
their notions of good and
evil are the result of the
moral atmosphere they
breathe.
