‘Community Portrait’ of Jewish Community Unveiled


On Feb. 11 at the Independence Visitor Center, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia unveiled the highly anticipated results of its new population survey. Known as “Community Portrait: A 2019 Jewish Population Study,” the survey revealed the first new comprehensive set of data in 10 years examining the socio-economic, demographic and public health shifts that have occurred in Greater Philadelphia’s Jewish communities.

Conducted by the research firm Westat and overseen by a lay leadership and technical advisory committee led by Sara and Adam Laver, “Community Portrait” was the first to use address-based sampling to study a Jewish community in the United States.

More information on “Community Portrait,” including a list of upcoming town halls and community meetings, can be found at jewishphilly.org/populationstudy.
