Growth of Jewish population in the USA

It has been intriguing to read details of the recent reports by Boston and Brandeis Universities which indicates that far from the projected decline in the US Jewish population over the last 10 years as predicted there has in actual fact been a quite significant increase in those identifying themselves as Jewish.

An interesting perspective from a American viewpoint is set out in this post by Rabbi Falick of Miami Florida on his atheist rabbi blog

Evidently the report deals with the Jewish population in the US. but it seems clear that the lessons to be learnt in the UK is that if UK Jewry is openly pluralist fully accepting orthodox, reform, liberal and humanists Jews as differing but representative members of a UK Jewish Community then there are grounds to believe that a stronger, larger and more confident UK Jewish community can thrive into the future, rather than the risk of retreating into a diminishing minority group.
