Where Do Most of the Jewish People In the World Live and What Caused the Jewish Diaspora?

The United States is home to the largest concentration of Jewish people in the world, with about 5.8 million.

Next is Israel, with 4.6 million, followed by Russia, France, Ukraine, Canada, and Great Britain.

The massive movement of Jews all over the world since the end of World War II is called the Jewish diaspora.

Many Jews left Europe to seek a better life in other parts of the world.

For example, almost 1.5 million Jews left Russia for other countries between 1948 and 1996.
