Well it’s about fookin’ time!

The UJC will finally be releasing the results of National Jewish Population Survey of 2000-01. The report’s release had been postponed twice, at least, in order to review its methods.

The contention had been made that the books have been cooked to keep the dollars pouring in to the Jewish non-profits. The supposition is that by over-stating the decline in the Jewish population, philanthropists might feel more inclined to contribute finances to “save their dying people.” However, an alternate study found over 600,000 more Jews in America than the UJC estimates, though there has been some debate over that study’s math as well.

The UJC’s survey should be available on their website sometime next week.
