This article provide partial lists of the Jewish population in some metropolitan area world wide, Jewish population outside Israel per cities in percentages, and Jewish population including Israel by number. Many cities with a large Jewish population, including Paris, London, Moscow, Buenos Aires and Marseille, are missing from the list due to a lack of census figures or other sources of verifiable information.
