These 10 Countries Have the Highest Jewish Population

Currently, there are 14.6 million Jews in the world and though their numbers are spread out in various countries, there are some countries which constitute a large percentage of their global population. One can venture a guess and say that Israel and the United States would be at the top but would you know where else in the world in which there is a large Jewish population?

Della Pergola defined a country’s “core Jewish population” as anyone who identified themselves as Jews; anyone without a religion who was identified as Jewish by a respondent in the same household; or anyone with Jewish parentage who does not identify with a particular religion. If one were to use the broader definition of Israel’s Law of Return - anyone with a Jewish grandparent - the number would swell to 23.5 million.
