Miami’s Jewish Population Increase: Primarily Among Young, Especially Downtown

Miami’s Jewish population increased 9% over the past 10 years, according to a new study.

The study found that the Downtown, Brickell, Key Biscayne, Midtown and Design District areas experienced ‘explosive’ growth over the past ten years, with the number of Jewish households in the area tripling (now at 3,600).  Those living in the Downtown area also tended to be much younger on average, with 40% between the ages of 18-34.

Overall, the largest growth came in among those under the age of 35. This marks the first measured population increase of Miami’s Jewish community since 1975.
