Jews are scattered all over the world, and there have been Jewish communities in most parts of the globe for many centuries.
The largest Jewish communities in the world today exist in Israel (5,413,800) and the United States (5,275,000).
There are also sizeable Jewish communities in many other countries including the Russia Federation, France, Canada, Argentina, the United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa and Hungary.
Just about every country in Europe has a Jewish community, and there are small communities scattered throughout the Middle East. There are new Jewish communities in parts of Asia, while communities in Australia’s big cities and in many countries in Latin America are also thriving.
Altogether, in the whole world, there are calculated to be 13.4 million Jews.
