An ethnoreligious group originating in the Israelites or Hebrews of the ancient Middle East. One of the most intelligent ethnicities on the planet. Jews have historically placed a high value on education, which allows them to contribute to advancing the world. Of American Nobel Prize winners, 37% have been Jewish Americans (19 times the percentage of Jews in the population). The stereotype of Jews being cheap is derived from the Middle Ages when Jews were forced by the Catholic Church to follow money lending professions.
