Chart: The decline of Europe’s Jewish population

A bloody attack on a Kosher supermarket in Paris last month has caused many French Jews to reconsider their lives in France, The Post’s Griff Witte reported this weekend. “We can’t say that these are jihadists imported from Iraq or Syria,” Marc Krief, rabbi at the Synagogue of Vincennes-Saint-Mandé, said of the attackers. “They were French citizens.”

If French Jews end up leaving France, they may be forming a new part of a broader and older trend. A new report from Pew Research points out that the Jewish population in Europe has dropped “significantly” in Europe over the last few decades, while the global Jewish population has risen.
