� Gwinnett, East Perimeter 13,500

Philadelphia only 206k? That seems low unless they are only counting Pennsylvania.

Also 1.4m for NY seems kinda low. I'd have thought it would be closer to 2m for the whole metro. (Again maybe they aren't counting northern NJ and CT)

Not sure how close but FWIW

This is for the city itself, estimated in 2009 at ~300K Jews.

Religion
Christianity is the dominant religion in the city of Philadelphia. The largest denomination is Roman Catholic. Philadelphia's Jewish population, the sixth largest in the nation, was estimated at 206,000 in 2001 and almost 300,000 in 2009.[8] There is also a significant Eastern Orthodox population as well as a strong Lutheran community. In fact, the greater Philadelphia area is home to one of the largest Lutheran communities in America (The largest on the East Coast).[citation needed]
Many new religions have arrived, including Islam and Hinduism. With immigration from the Middle East, the Horn of Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh and India, these two religions have increased their presence. The largest concentrations of Muslims and Hindus live in the Northeast and North parts of the city, Center City, West Philadelphia, and sprawling into the nearby suburbs.
Religions with less numerous adherents can also be found. There is Buddhism in Chinatown, and Caribbean and African traditional religions in North and West Philadelphia. These numbers are also growing. Historically the city has strong connections to The Religious Society of Friends, Unitarian Universalism, and Ethical Culture, all of which continue to be represented in the city. The Friends General Conference is based in Philadelphia.
The Muslim African American community in Philadelphia has grown substantially over the last decade. According to several statistics, Philadelphia has surpassed Detroit and New York City to become the American metropolitan area with the highest proportion of Muslims.

Interesting list. The Jewish population of Miami-Dade County must be at around 100-115,000. That's half there was in 1980 when the Jewish population was 230,000. Like a lot of other people, many left Miami during the '80's and moved up to Broward & Palm Beach. The stereotypical "Jewish" city in South Florida these days is probably Boca Raton. The Jewish community in Dade is still pretty large though, many are older and wealthy living in Miami Beach or Aventura.

According to that list South Florida's Jewish population is over 600,000, which would be the 2nd largest after New York.

This list looks closest to reality:

It's from 2002 but apart from a few outliers (e.g., Atlanta) current numbers should be similar.
