As U.S. Jews switch denominations, Reform Judaism has gained and Conservative Judaism has lost

The U.S. Jewish population, like other groups, is in constant flux. Some people who were raised as Jews have left the religion, while some who were raised outside the faith now identify with it. Others have switched denominations – a trend that has seen the Reform movement grow modestly and Conservative Judaism experience a net loss, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis. Overall, 88% of U.S. adults who were raised Jewish are still Jewish today. This includes 70% who identify with the Jewish religion and 18% who don’t identify with any religion but who consider themselves Jewish in some other way, such as culturally, ethnically or by family background.
