The 2022 Study of Jewish Louisville employed state-of-the-art methods to create a comprehensive portrait of the present-day Jewish community in Louisville and the surrounding area.

The findings are based on survey data collected from 817 households that completed a survey between October 2021 and January 2022. The study is a first step in identifying communal trends, generating questions to explore, and determining strategies, programs, and policies to enhance Jewish life in Greater Louisville.

The study aspired to: 

  • Estimate the number of Jewish adults and children in the community
  • Estimate the number of non-Jewish adults and children residing in Jewish households
  • Describe the community in terms of age and gender, geographic distribution, health and economic well-being, and other socio-demographic traits
  • Measure participation in Jewish communal programs and organizations
  • Assess the multifaceted cultural, communal, and religious expressions of Judaism that constitute Jewish engagement
  • Assess attitudes toward Judaism, the Jewish community, and Israel
