A Slow Week for Blogging

Shalom all. I apologize for the lack of content. I am helping with our congregation’s Children’s Summer Yeshiva this week. We set up a Biblical village and made costumes and we are teaching and entertaining kids every day. It leaves me little enough time for my regular study and work. I will post if I have time, but meanwhile, it may be a few days before I have anything.

Hope you’re all having a great summer.

    Dear Derek,
    God’s hand of protection for His remnant is evident to me when I realize that there are only 15,000,000 Jews in this world of ours. My question to you is this: Was there ever a time when there were more Jews in the world–when and how many and what is your basis for your answer?

    Thank you,

    By His grace,

    E. Lee Handley

  2. Mr. Handley:

    According to one source I found, the number of Jews in 1945 was 11,000,000. Assuming 5 1/2 million were murdered in the Holocaust and that I am not missing something here, that means before WWII there were 16.5 million Jewish people in the world.

    I doubt that Jewish population was ever higher than that. I hope this helps.
