A name for people who are part of the Jewish religion, It is a RELIGION and is not a race or group of people out to get you so for the ignorent people that have decided that they 'hate' Jews, one of your close friends are likely to be jewish and they probably dont even know themselves.
Jews are a bunch of amazing, beautiful people and i love them.
Remember; being jewish is a BELEIF and therefore cannot look a certain way.
The list of Jews are endless, if anyone wants to get rid of jews then maybe you should realise that so many of the people you watch on telly, so many songs you listen too, so many people you admire are infact jews.
EG. Simon Cowel, Zac Efron, Sharon Osbourne, Amy Whinehouse, Einstein, a guy in west life, there are just too many to name.

1) someone who practises judaism

2) is also a culture/ethnicity, that is to say it has a certain sense of humour, certain type of food and music etc.

it is neither better nor worse than any other religion/culture/ethnicity in any way. Jews have been opressed, and used as scape-goats, in many points throughout history but so have other cultures.

i think it is dangerous both either elevate people who are Jewish or to look down on them!
bob dylan is Jewish...............um
my dad, and his family, are Jewish...........
i am not Jewish
Jesus was jewish
you may or may not be a jew
Hitler didn't like the Jews, neither did the ancient Egyptians

1 Someone of the Jewish persuasion.
2 A derogatory term for someone who is dishonest, miserly or generally regarded as not being a gentleman.

1 To cheat or defraud.
2 To expend an excessive amount of time and effort to negotiate the lowest price for something when an ordinary person would be ashamed to do so.
What a Jew! He spent 2 hours getting 20 dollars off the price of a new car.
He just doesn't try to integrate in the local community--he's a Jew.
My boss promised me a Christmas bonus back in February but when the time arrived he jewed me out of it.
The boss bought a new Cadillac on company money then explained to me that there wasn't any money to give me my promised raise....the lousy Jew.
The company owner doesn't spend money on safety equipment for the workers...he's a Jew.

Jews are:

A follower of the Judaic religion, also known as Judaism.

Jews are not (except for SOME cases:

Always Israeli
Curly haired, big nosed, and cheap
Constantly pointing out anti-semitism


And also, recently a swastika was painted on a Jewish temple. I'm a Jew. That hurt. So please stop making anti-semitic (or anti-JEWISH, I realize that a semite is anyone from the middle east, but IT HAS COME TO MEAN anti-Jewish) comments, because, dude, it hurts.

A group of individuals consisting of approximately 0.2% of the entire world population, and yet somehow manage to have won more than 20% of the nobel prizes awarded since 1901. The Jews have throughout history suffered from persecution, reaching a peak in WW2, when almost 80% of the entire Jewish population in Europe was murdered. After this the state of Israel was established, to provide a safe haven for the Jews. Despite this, anti-semitism remained a very real part of being a Jew even in our own modern world. Due to the fact that Jews place an extremely high value on the importance of education, the Jewish community is an exceptionally well established, educated and intelligent population in comparison to it's meagre size. Israel, a relatively tiny country, has produced hundreds of established people in literature, art, music, science and mathematics, while simultaneously fighting off haters and terrorists from all sides with its skilled army, and yet Jews continue to be amongst the most despised people on the planet.
1. "Despite their breakthroughs in medicine which have saved millions of lives, including a recent breakthrough in cancer treatment, many people seem to want Israel gone, the Jews dead, and their dear aunt Catherine to die of lung cancer because with Israel gone, that particular research will be stunted untill further notice."

2. "Thousands of people boycotted Israel during the 2008 Gaza war, explaining that they are doing this in protest to Israel defending itself from frequent terrorist bombings that had been occuring in the past 8 years. Many of these boycotters posted "boycott Israel" videoclips on youtube, blogged about how much they hated Israel or otherwise used their computers during this time, not realizing that the Intel microchip in their computer was developed by Israel and by using any computer that was less than 30 years old they were supporting Israel. What a bunch of idiots..."

3. "Oh, the Protestants hate the Catholics,
And the Catholics hate the Protestants,
And the Hindus hate the Muslims,
And everybody hates the Jews."

A person of the Jewish faith. Stereotyped as greedy because they invented interest, a system of banking used by any capitalist, whether they're Jewish, Christian, Islamic, atheist, or whatever.
Guy 1: Hey look, its that greedy Jew!
Guy 2: dude, Your a banker.

A person of Jewish faith or of Jewish race. Most Jews are in fact not religious but are Jews by blood. Most actors and filmmakers in the US are of Jewish decent. Common Jewish names include Cohen, Levi/Levine, Isaac and anything which contains 'Gold', 'Ruben', 'Silver', 'Stein' or 'Berg'. Famous Jews change their names to be more accepted.
Just a handful of examples: Steven Spielberg, Oliver Stone, Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, Bob Dillon, Woody Allen, Ben Stiller, Billy Crystal, Daniel Day Lewis, David Schwimmer, Lisa Kudrow, Sarah Jessica Parker...
