Prior to the murder of 6 million Jews between 1939 and 1945, some 16,600,000 were spread throughout the world. Today’s data indicates that there are currently 14,511,000 Jews on Earth, a number similar to that in 1922.
Whether Area C becomes part of Israel or is handed over to the PA, "we should know how many potential Arab citizens we'll have in the state."
During the year an estimated 176,700 babies were born, 74% Jewish, 23% Arab and 4.4% “other.”
The difference in birth rates between the Jewish and Arab populations have declined significantly over the last decade.
On the eve of Rosh Hashana 5774, the population of the State of Israel stands at 8.081 million people.
The term “6 million” has chilling reminders of the Holocaust. Now that the number of Jews in Israel has reached that mark, the country is the largest Jewish center in the world.

According to a study by Hebrew University’s Professor Sergio DellaPergola, the global Jewish population reached 13.75 million in the past year, with an increase of 88,000 people. Israel’s Maariv newspaper published excerpts of the study last week, reporting that one out of every 514 people in the world is Jewish, less than 0.2 percent of mankind.
Demographics is destiny. The left is reshaping countries to match its demographic targets. It is turning nations into one great gerrymandered district composed of populations that are more likely to support it. It is doing this using immigration, economics, social policy and every tool at its disposal. And if conservatives don't start understanding the demographic game of thrones, then they will lose the war.
We are saddened by some assertions made by Agudath Israel of America spokesman Rabbi Shafran in last week's Forward newspaper. We have, until now, avoided any editorializing on the continuing and animated exchange of opinion that has appeared for several weeks in our Letters To The Editor section, preferring to let our readers explore the issue of Agudath Israel's non-participation in the recent Washington rally in support of Israel. And we will not now address the controversy. However we cannot leave unremarked some of Rabbi Shafran's comments.
