The Jewish Federations of North America commissioned a survey of Jews and non-Jews about the situation in Israel.

The Jews are very nervous.

97% of American Jews are following the war in Gaza closely. 

94% say there is discrimination against Jews in the US today, and 66% say there is "a lot."

71% of Jews are at least somewhat worried about their personal safety.


74% of Jews thought there was "a lot" of antisemitism in the country as a whole, and 86% said there was more antisemitism today than five years ago. 72% of U.S. Jews said they thought antisemitism in their local community was rising as well.

58% think antisemitism will get worse in their community. 75% expect that the war in Gaza will spill over into safety issues in their own communities.

This is remarkably pessimistic from a group that has been pretty happy in America, and that hasn't had to worry much about antisemitism in recent decades.

Interestingly, only a small number of Jewish respondents - 9% - consider themselves Orthodox. That means that the vast majority of American Jews who dress and largely look like their non-Jewish counterparts are still very concerned about their personal safety.

I was surprised that some 95% of the Jews surveyed had visited Israel at least one; 52% more than once and 10% had lived there. 82% of Jews have passports. 

We might be seeing aliyah numbers from North America go up in the next year.
