Population Numbers of Jews in USA Through History

During the Revolutionary War of 1776 the population of the states was about 4 million. Out of that there were only about 2,500 Jews.

By 1840 we only had 15,000 Jewish people. By 1860 our population grew to 150,000. The nation by then had a total of 30 million people.

Today there are approximately 6 million Jewish people in the United States.
40.3% of the world's Jewish people live in the United States. The United States has a total of 305,529,237 people; over 300 million as of 2009.

We make up less than 1% or from 0.84% to 0.23% of the total world population.
