A report published by the London-based Institute for Jewish Policy Research has provided a heart warming number for worldwide Jewry. Approximately one in seven Jews worldwide identify as Orthodox.
According to the report, out of a worldwide Jewish population of 15.166 million at the end of 2020, around 2,077,000, or 14%, identified with an Orthodox group.
