The number of Jews alive today is still lower than it was in 1939, prior to the Holocaust, according to recently released figures from the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics.

Prior to the murder of 6 million Jews between 1939 and 1945, some 16,600,000 were spread throughout the world. Contemporary data, based on information gathered by Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s Division of Jewish Demography and Statistics and the A. Harman Institute of Contemporary Jewry, indicates that there are currently 14,511,000 Jews on Earth, a number similar to that in 1922.
