New York (JTA) — Despite
fears that the size of the
American Jewish population
is in decline, the 1990 Na-
tional Jewish Population
Survey has revealed a slight
growth over the last 20
years.
Yet despite the slight in-
crease, the zero or even
negative rate of population
growth will eventually im-
pact the community, warned
one sociologist.
The study shows that there
are 5.51 million people in
this country who call them-
selves either Jewish by re-
ligion or secular Jews, com-
pared with 5.2 million peo-
ple who did in 1970.
An additional 590,000
people were raised as Jews,
or have Jewish parents, but
currently report that they
affiliate with another re-
ligion.
Combined, the 6.1 million
people also represent an in-
crease over the 5.4 million
people who identified them-
selves 20 years ago as Jews
and as converts from
Judaism to another faith.
The increase, according to
the study, is due in part to
recent immigration; the fact
that more people than ever
before are willing to identify
themselves as Jews; and be-
cause more comprehensive
survey methods were used
than for the 1970 study.
According to Bernard
Lazerwitz, professor of
sociology at Israel's Bar-Ilan
University and the survey
statistician on the 1970
population survey project,
"When the immigration
stops, as it becomes limited,
then the inevitable decline
will begin because of the low
birthrate and the loss of
Jews through intermar-
riage."

Jewish immigration to the
United States over the past
two decades has primarily
been some 150,000 Israelis,
100,000 from the Soviet
Union and about 30,000 Ira-
nian Jews, said Mr. Lazer-
witz.
"Over 20 years," he said,
"that means a birth rate of
not very much."
This study was the second
of its kind commissioned by
the Council of Jewish Fed-
erations, and the first since
the 1970 survey.
Preliminary findings were
announced at the annual
General Assembly of the
Council of Jewish Federa-
tions currently taking place
in San Francisco.
Dr. Barry Kosmin, CJF di-
rector of research and direc-
tor of the North American.
Jewish Data Bank, directed
the study, which was actu-
ally conducted by the ICR
Research Group of Media,
Pa.
The new findings are im-
portant because "they are
the best possible way of com-
ing up with a national por-
trait of the Jewish commun-
ity," said David Singer, di-
rector of research for the
American Jewish Com-
mittee and editor of the
American Jewish Yearbook.
While other ethnic groups
benefit from statistics com-
piled during the U.S. Cen-
sus, the census does not
record religious affiliation,
and so there have been no
data on the American Jew-
ish community as a whole
for the past two decades,
though over 50 studies were
conducted by individual
communities.
The national study's
results will have great im-
pact on communal policy
decisions, say sociologists.
