    "Jewish" refers to descendants of Judah and/or residents of the kingdom of Judah (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin, plus an assortment of others who stayed in the south); thus, when jwz says "in search of lost Jews," he's inaccurate, and when the person claims to be a Jew from the "Bnei Menashe tribe," that's really inaccurate.

    Yes, I give Bible class teachers fits. Abraham was not a Jew. :)

    Oh, and it's GNU/Linux, not Linux! (There's a word for people like me.)

    J. David works really hard, has a passion for writing good software, and knows many of the world's best Perl programmers
    • IIRC, the legal definition of "Jew" in Israel's immigration laws is "someone whose mother is Jew". This kind of recursive definition allows regressio ad infinitum, doesn't it ?
