Judaism in Connecticut
Jews across the United States are getting ready for Passover (March 30 - April 7). But just how much of the country will be celebrating?
The Pew Research Center conducted an in-depth study into the religious breakdown of the United States based on telephone calls with 35,000 Americans from all 50 states.
About 1.9 percent of participants identified as Jewish in the United States. In the Northeast, that percentage is higher at 4 percent, making it the most Jewish region in the country. A great majority of 67 percent of Jews in the Northeast reported being third generation and only 13 percent reported being immigrants.
In Connecticut, 3 percent of participants identified as Jewish. The most Jewish states in the country are New York and New Jersey with 7 and 6 percent Jewish population, respectively.
