According to authors of a new study of Canadian Jewry, “whatever the validity of conventional wisdom on Jewish assimilation in the Diaspora, it does not appear to apply well” to Canadian Jewry. With a growing population estimated at 392,000 people, it seems to be doing an unusually good job of keeping younger cohorts attached to, and involved in, Jewish life.

Reporting on the study, an author for Tablet Magazine wrote that “maybe it’s time American Jews took some lessons from their neighbors to the north.” The Canadian Jewish News carried two pieces about the study, one by the authors and one by a staff reporter. The complete study is available here.
