4% of American Jewish Children at Supplementary Schools go to Chabad

In our last post, “Jewish Education Census Shows Chabad Schools at 13% of Total Supplementary Schools” we reported that Chabad schools make up about 13% of all Jewish supplementary schools in the United States.

Student Body at Jewish Supplementary Schools

While this number looks impressive, if we count the student body at these schools, we get just 4% of American Jewish children at Chabad.

According to the report, three-quarters of all Chabad schools
have enrollments of fewer than 50 students. And nearly all Chabad schools enroll less than 100 students.

The report’s author, Jack Wertheimer, did not find this surprising. He cites the recent entry of Chabad into the supplementary school field as the reason for this finding.
