This study articulates different scenarios for the development of Jewish population worldwide up to the year 2080. The results are presented in full awareness that forecasting, in demography, tends to underestimate the range of possible developments. Slow and gradual trends occasionally clash with sudden braking points. Therefore, our approach extends over time the path of trends presently observed, allowing for change within the limits of what currently appears to be a reasonable range of variation.
