The number of Jews in the Detroit area is declining, according to a new study. Some 72,000 Jews live in the area, down from 96,000 in 1989, according to the study, conducted by sociologist Ira Sheskin for the Jewish Federation of Detroit. But Sheskin and federation officials believe the 1989 survey overestimated the number of Jews in the area.
