THE latest Jewish community statistics show that a record low number of marriages took place in 2017, with just four.
Published in the annual Merseyside Jewish Representative Council Year Book, the statistics also show that only 163 pupils at King David Primary and High School are Jewish — the joint lowest figure with 2015. A dramatic drop from 243 recorded 11 years ago.
The community numbers have also dropped to a record low of just 2,180, although this is just an estimate.
The most densely populated age group is that of 60-69, with 400, while 70-79 comes second with 370.
