Are Jews good?

Most Jews try to be good people.Judaism commands us to behave ethically, to be aware of God at all times (Deuteronomy 4:39), to walk in His ways (Deuteronomy 8:6), and to maintain exemplary behavior (Isaiah 49:6). "Observe therefore and do them (the commands); for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, that, when they hear all these statutes, shall say: 'Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people' " (Deuteronomy 4:6). While none of us can claim to be completely unfailing in our responsibilities, most of us can answer the Question in the affirmative.
