Top Universities in Nevada

Judaism in the USA

The second most common religion in the United States, after Christianity, is Judaism, with an estimated over six million Jewish believers living in the country.

The Jewish community in the United States consists predominantly of Ashkenazi Jews, descendants of emigrants from Central and Eastern Europe. There are also a small number of Sephardim (originating from Spain, Portugal and North Africa), Mizrahi (immigrants from the Middle East), Ethiopian Jews, etc.

Jewish communities (as well as other religious groups) are very heterogeneous, in the United States there are both Orthodox Jews and supporters of conservative and reformed Judaism. About sixteen percent of Jews living in the United States attend synagogue at least once a month, and more than forty percent at least once a year.

There are more believing Jews in the Northeast and Midwest of the United States than in the South and West of the United States.

The largest Jewish communities in the United States are located in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Washington. New York is the second (after Tel Aviv) city in the world in terms of the number of Jews living in it.

One in six American Jews eats only kosher foods.

In recent years there has been a growing interest in Judaism among American Jews, although the percentage of atheists among US Jews is generally higher than the average for the United States of America.

Buddhism in the USA

Buddhism is the fourth most widespread religion in the United States of America. The majority of Buddhists in the US are Asian Americans, but there are quite a few adherents of Buddhism among other ethnic groups in the US.

Buddhism appeared in the United States in the 19th century, when mass immigration from East Asia began to America. The first Buddhist temple in the United States was built in San Francisco in 1853 by Chinese Americans. In the 80s of the 19th century, Chinese immigration to the United States was legally limited, but around these years, the number of immigrants to the United States from Japan increased, and at the beginning of the 20th century from Korea. This period also saw a significant increase in interest in Buddhism among the American intelligentsia.

In modern America, a significant proportion of Buddhists (about forty percent) live in Southern California, relative to the total population, the largest number of Buddhists in Hawaii.
