The global Jewish population has reached 13.75 million, according to a new study by Professor Sergio DellaPergola of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, with a growth of 88,000 in the past year.

The Times of Israel’s Rosh Hashanah infographic combines some of DellaPergola’s research with figures from Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics for a new year’s picture of the statistical status of the tribe.
