In a new report on CJjews.com, it looks like our Jewish neighbors to the north are in serious need of a boost in their population growth. In Canada, it seems that Jewish communities are not holding on to their numbers very well due to emigration, the elderly passing away, and the low birth rates. CJnews.com explains that
the census found that Canadas Jewish population rose by a modest 3.5 per cent between 1991 and 2001, to just over 370,000. It was one of the lowest rates of growth among religions and other ethnic groups, and sounded alarm bells among communal leaders on the need to increase the Jewish birthrate and boost immigration.
