Hitler’s criteria for exterminating Jews was any individual who had at least one grandparent who was a Jew. Using that definition, practicing Christians who had no idea that they had a Jewish ancestor could be killed for being Jewish.

I don’t know if I would say that Judaism is a race onto itself, but I would say it is a nationality. Jews as such originated in Judea and were dispersed through out the world, often not by choice. Thorugh out this dispersment they kept some basic customs and beliefs.

It silly to say that Ethiopian Jews are Jewish only because of their religion,and can not compare to real Jews such as the Ashkenazi Jews. That is a misconception. Ethiopian Jews predate Ashkenazi Jews, and claim to jewish history dating back to Moses.
There are two major diferences between the spharadi jews and the ashkenazi jews. Spharadi Jews are either middle eastern or medeteranianJews. Ashkenazi jews are eastern european Jews.
the second diference is how they pray.
Growning up a major question that kept poping up was always is judaism a religion or a nationality. I am very jewish and have been all of my 47 years, but in all those years I can not say that I have practiced an relgious rituals even though I know many of them.
The word Spharad in Hebrew means Spain. Ashkenazi Jews are mostly jews who lived in a predominantly christian society and pray fairly loudly and have ver little body movement. Spharadi Jews lived in countries like Spain where they were forced to convert to christianity pray under thier breath, or in the middle east and have similar body movements to arabs where prayer involves the body.

Someone that was born to a Jewish mom or converted his religion to Judaism.
That person is not always Israeli, not always white, and not always believes in god!!!
The Judaism is a religion and also a nation.
All the stereotypes about Jews are right in the same way that Christian people can be cheap and big-nosed, which means it's not right about all the Jews.
If someone, for some reason, thinks that I'm wrong- please tell me why.
I'm Jew, and I live in Israel, so every word I've said-
I guaranty- is true..and that's for sure
sorry about the spelling and grammar mistakes

A member of the widely dispersed people descended from the ancient Hebrews and sharing an ethnic heritage based on Judaism.
People who practice Judaism should be called Judaists(after all that was the original term for someone who practiced Judaism), not Jews because almost half of Israel's Jewish population is secular(non-religous). But they still consider themselves Jewish because Jews are an ethnic group, not a RELIGIOUS GROUP.

1. noun. a person who is descended from a jew (mother or father, does not matter, apparently a lot of jews don't even know this)
2. noun. a person who practices judaism
3. noun. a person who considers themselves a 'member of the tribe' (the 12 tribes, all desdended from Abraham). there are people who consider themselves ethnically, socially, and/or culturally jewish though they do not practice judaism. Jews refer to non-jews as 'gentiles.'

4. verb. to cheat someone, to get someone down on their price, to be stingy
No one in our family actually practices judaism, though we are aware of our roots and celebrate several jewish holidays, Hannukah, purim, etc.. sort of like a lot of christians celebrate christmas but don't go to church....
