Do Jews have Jew gold?
Yes ! Now, at last, the truth can be told: Many Jews have gold. Several American Jews with IRAs and 401(k)s have invested some of their retirement funds in gold. A great number of those Jews now over 80 years of age, both American- and foreign-born, who grew up with sufficient wealth to seek dental care, have gold fillings in their teeth, even to this day ! Perhaps most shocking of all, there are Jews who, with seemingly no concern for their health or reputation, wear gold for decoration, in necklaces, bracelets, and rings. It's also true that many Jews have no gold at all.

Jews are members of one of the oldest religions, the religion ofMoses. The line between being a member of the religion and being ofthe Jewish "race" seems to be difficult even… for Jews to define;however most Jews consider Judaism a religion, rather than a race. The Torah is a partial history of the Jewish people. Today, Judaismis effectively divided into three sub-sects but some claim that thenumber is higher. Mostly, the three groups differ on how strictlythey follow ancient Jewish tradition. (If you ever saw the movie"Fiddler on the Roof" you have seen an example of a traditionalJewish family, although Jewish parents today do not necessarilypick a husband for their daughter.) A few Jewish laws include: They do not eat pork or shellfish. They do not eat meat and dairy in the same meal; and cooking dairyand meat foodstuffs in the same pot is also forbidden. Henceobservant Jews keep two sets of dishes, cutlery, utensils and pots. The most traditional Jews tend to not associate very much sociallywith non-Jews or less observant Jews; however all Jews are equallycommanded to behave at all times pleasantly toward all people, inkeeping with the biblical verse "The Torah's ways are ways ofpleasantness and all her paths are peace." "Gentile" is the name they may use to refer to non-Jews. Circumcision is the first Jewish rite of passage, and occurs 8 daysafter the birth of a boy (Genesis ch.17). It is a practice in whichthe foreskin of the infant is surgically and ceremonially removedand the child is given a name. The main Jewish rite of passage occurs at age 13. It is called thebar-mitzvah, meaning son of the commandments. (For girls it iscalled the bat-mitzvah, which means daughter of the commandmentsand happens at age 12.) From this age, a Jewish youth is consideredan adult. The bar-mitzvah ceremony consists of a Jewish youthsaying blessings and reading in Hebrew from the Torah. Abraham had a son Isaac, who had a son Jacob, who had 12 sons whosedescendants are known as the 12 tribes of Israel. One of Jacob'ssons was Judah and all of the descendants of Judah (and his 11brothers collectively) are called "Jews" and belong to the Jewishreligion. Much of Christianity has its roots in Judaism, but much of Judaismwas thrown out from Christianity when Constantine united the RomanEmpire under his new religion called Christianity. Answer 2 According to Jewish tradition, a Jew is someone born of a Jewishmother, or who converted to Judaism through a proper conversion. Christian answer This is what the Bible says about a true Jew, in Romans 2.28,29) For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is thatcircumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, whichis one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in thespirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but ofGod.
Jews are the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, or converts to Judaism.
Torture, gassing, shooting. These are only a few examples. Hope this helps.
Jews do Mitzvot. The word "Mitzvot" is the plural of the word"Mitzvah." A mitzvah is a Jewish word for a Divine commandment. Forthose who have read the bible, there are 613 co…mmandments in theTorah. Those are the mitzvot. They include the Ten Commandments, aswell as laws about charity (called Tzedekah), respect, and manyother things. The reason that the Tanakh (Hebrew Bible) and its mitzvot do notinclude the New Testament is that the Jewish religion is older thanthe new testament, and Jews do not believe in the concept of a sonof God.
A Jew is anyone who is a member of the Jewish faith. In practice, the word is also used of people descended from Jews in the above sense, even if they are themselves non-pr…acticing or atheist.
Jewish tradition states that a Jew is any person whose mother wasJewish (Talmud, Kidushin 68b), or any person who has gone through aproper conversion to Judaism (Talmud, Yevam…ot 47a). . The word "Jew" (in Hebrew, "Yehudi") is derived from the name ofJudah, the fourth son of Jacob and one of the Twelve Tribes of theIsraelites. The Jewish people are descendants of Abraham the Hebrew through hisgrandson Jacob, and whose Semitic ancestors lived in the FertileCrescent and who lived most of his life in the Middle Easterncountry of Israel (Canaan) 3800 years ago. Hebrews, Israelites, Jews - the same people in successive eras: . Hebrews Abraham is called a Hebrew (Genesis ch.14) because "Hebrews"(Ivrim) means descendants of Eber (Ever). Ever was a Western Semiteand an ancestor of Abraham (Genesis ch.10-11), and the earlyHebrews were Abraham's uncles and cousins for several generationsback. They lived in the Fertile Crescent, in northern Mesopotamia,west of the Euphrates river. Abraham was born in the city of Ur (inMesopotamia; now Iraq). In 1934-39, excavations were conducted at ancient Mari on theEuphrates River. They found that ancient towns were named after theancestors (Genesis ch.11) of Abraham: The "city of Nahor" was found near the city of Haran which existsto this day. Equally clear signs of early Hebrew residence appearin the names of other towns nearby: Serug (Assyrian Sarugi ),Terah ( Til Turakhi , "Mound of Terah"), and Peleg( Paliga , on the Euphrates near the mouth of the Habur). Allthese names are found in Genesis ch.11. In Ur, Abraham first repudiated idolatry. He then sojourned inHarran (Syria) for several years, and then lived most of his lifein Canaan (Israel). It was in Canaan that Abraham lived most of hislife, made a covenant with God (Genesis ch.15), and raised a familyto be the center of carrying on his traditions (Genesis 18:19). . Israelites Abraham's chosen son was Isaac (Genesis ch.21). Isaac's son Jacobwas blessed by God, who renamed him, calling him Israel (Genesisch.35), which is why Jews are also called Israelites. Abraham's family carried on his teachings voluntarily. Judaism as abinding, permanent entity, was set forth between God and theIsraelite nation descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob at MountSinai in the time of Moses (Exodus ch.19, ch.24, and 34:27). All of the above places are in the ancient Fertile Crescent. . Jews Jacob had 12 sons, who fathered the 12 Israelite tribes. TheIsraelites worshiped One God. One thousand years after Jacob, ten of the tribes were exiled bythe Assyrians, to points unknown. The only complete tribes leftwere Judah and Benjamin; plus part of Levi. The few thousands whoremained from the other tribes joined the Tribe of Judah; andmodern Jews are mostly descendants of Judah (hence the word "Jew"). This tradition has been substantiated by DNA analysis of Jewishcommunities all over the world, showing them to be inter-relatedand of Middle Eastern origin. The Cohanim, a family of the tribe ofLevi, also share common genetics. We possess the names and dates of our ancestors and leaders in anunbroken chain for 3800 years. In 2000, Nicholas Wade concluded that his DNA study "providedgenetic witness that Jewish communities have, to a remarkableextent, retained their biological identity separate from their hostpopulations, evidence of relatively little intermarriage orconversion into Judaism over the centuries. The results accord withJewish history and tradition." . Abraham was a historical person, as recorded in the Book ofGenesis; and his gravesite is known to this day, in the Machpelahat Hebron, Israel. He is revered by Jews, Christians, and Muslims,comprising over three billion people. The Jewish people haveattested to his existence for 3800 years, and his name is mentionedby several ancient non-Jewish historians as far back as 2,300 yearsago.

The Jews (Hebrew: ×Ö°××Ö¼×Ö´××â "Yehudim"), also known as the Jewish people, are a nation and ethnoreligious group originating in the Israelites o…r Hebrews of the Ancient Near East. The Jewish ethnicity, nationality, and religion are strongly interrelated, as Judaism is the traditional faith of the Jewish nation. Converts to Judaism, whose status as Jews within the Jewish ethnos is equal to those born into it, have been absorbed into the Jewish people throughout the millennia. In Jewish tradition, Jewish ancestry is traced to the Biblical patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in the second millennium BCE. The Jews currently enjoy political autonomy in the State of Israel, an independent state which is located in their national homeland, the Land of Israel. It officially defines itself as a Jewish state in its Basic Laws, and is the only country in the world where Jews constitute a majority of the population. They have also experienced political autonomy twice during ancient history. The first of the two ancient eras spanned from 1350 BCE to 586 BCE, and encompassed the periods of the Judges, the United Monarchy, and the Divided Monarchy of the Kingdoms of Israel and Judah, ending with the destruction of the First Temple. The second era was the period of the Hasmonean Kingdom spanning from 140 to 37 BCE. Since the destruction of the First Temple, the diaspora has been the home of most of the world's Jews. Except in the modern State of Israel, Jews are a minority in every country in which they live, and they have frequently experienced persecution throughout history, resulting in a population that fluctuated both in numbers and distribution over the centuries. According to the Jewish Agency for Israel, as of 2007, there were 13-14 million Jews worldwide, 5.4 million of whom lived in Israel, 5.3 million in the United States, and the remainder distributed in communities of varying sizes around the world; this represents 0.2% of the current estimated world population. The Israel Central Bureau of Statistics estimates the number of Israeli Jews to be 5.6 million and the U.S. Census Bureau estimates the American Jewish population to be as many as 6.4 million.) These numbers include all those who consider themselves Jews whether or not affiliated with a Jewish organization. The total world Jewish population, however, is difficult to measure. In addition to halakhic considerations, there are secular, political, and ancestral identification factors in defining who is a Jew that increase the figure considerably.
No. Unlike Christianity, there is no requirement or need in the Jewish religion for non-Jews to convert.
