JNS.org – The American Muslim population will surpass the number of Jews living in the United States “even before 2040,” the Pew Research Center projects in a recently released study.

Muslims currently make up less than 1 percent of the US adult population, but according to Pew estimates, that number will grow to 2.1 percent by 2050 — outnumbering those who identify as Jewish by religion in America (excluding Jews who identify as secular).

Islam is the fastest-growing religion in America, followed by Christianity, Hinduism, and Judaism.
