The Jewish people are an ethnic group.

Judaism is a religion.

Both, sort of...

Race - You are considered Jewish through matrilinial descent, if your mother is a Jew then you are a Jew. You can be a Jew without practicing the religion of Judaism, but Jews typically do not appreciate being called a race. It's more appropriate to refer to it as a Nation, maybe an ethnicity, but calling it a race tends to offend.

Religion - Judaism is certainly a religion, but a person can also be a Jew and not practice Judaism, there are Jews that are Buddhists, Christians, etc. Likewise, a person of any descent or race can convert to Judaism.

I have had a good friend for decades that was a practicing Jew his entire life, a couple years ago he became a Jehovah's Witness, that was pretty wierd, but he is still a Jew.

At least I think he is, I haven't talked to him in a few months and I need to call and catch up to make sure he's still alive, last time I visited them in NY his wife was about ready to kill him :)

I'm still considered Jewish now and will be for my whole life by religious Jewish authorities, because my mother is Jewish, despite not practicing the religion in the slightest (except at family affairs) and not believing that the Torah was divinely inspired.

Give me his name and address and I'll spare her the trouble.

Seriously, Jehovah's Witness? Is he that pathetic and devoid of purpose?

LOL, it was certainly a shock to everyone, from a denomination of Chrisnity to JW is somewhat understanbdable, but a practicing Jew in his 40s, it just seemed incredible. He met somebody who convinced him and he converted in a big way, we talked a lot about it for about a year because after a while his wife forbid him to even mention it in the house and he needed somebody to talk to about it. I may have told him I did, but I never did understand really.

Ask him to come on here and debate me.

It would be a slaughter. Jehovah's Witnesses can't defend their own religion by themselves, much less a Jew who converted in his forties.

Judaism is based on racism, isn't it?

What?.. There are German Jews, Spanish Jews, Moroccan Jews, Yemenite Jews, Ethiopian Jews and Arab Jews. So I really don't know where you're coming from.

Could it be that you classify the prototypical "Jewish" look as an example of racial purity because you're so ignorant you don't know that most American Jews are of German (Ashkenazi) descent and therefore look homogeneous?

I am well aware that American Jews are mostly Ashkenazi.

I was just trolling. I hoped you would catch the fact that Judaism was founded upon an ethnic covenant, but that eluded you. Whatever.

Judaism is a culture and a religion. It is not a "race," nor is it an "ethnicity." Ethnically, many Jewish people are Palestinian, but several are European, as well. Most have African ancestry.

Where the fuck did you get that statistic from? Most Jews are European.

I reveal my ignorance here but are most Jews today Ashkenazi?

Ashkenazi means German but it refers to other European Jews as well (except the Spanish).
