UJA Federation
Covid-19 Impact Study

From February to May 2021, UJA conducted an examination of the economic and social impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the New York Jewish community. The study provides a snapshot of life during the pandemic in 2021.

We heard from a representative sample of 4,400 New York area adults who are Jewish or living in a household with one or more Jewish adults and learned more about the ways the coronavirus pandemic has affected their lives and livelihoods. 

The broad coverage area includes the five New York City boroughs, as well as Nassau, Suffolk, and Westchester counties, across all — and regardless of—levels of observance, religious belief, and belonging to Jewish communal organizations. 

The data will help us understand the pressing needs of the New York Jewish community and guides decision-makers in planning a recovery roadmap.
