    Usage notes

    * The Jewish community overall has a common religion, culture, identity, and ethnicity, but individual Jews do not necessarily share all of these; therefore, a person might be a Jew by one standpoint but not by another. * Additionally, there are some religious groups that identify themselves as part of Judaism, but that other Jewish groups might not; hence, use of the term Jew often depends on the speaker's opinions. * The noun Jew'' is not offensive, and the overwhelming majority of English-speaking Jews use the noun ''Jew to identify themselves. * That said, it has become offensive for historical reasons to use the word Jew'' attributively, in modifying another noun (as in "Jew lawyer"); the adjective ''Jewish is preferred for this purpose. * Additionally, the derived verbs jew'' and ''jew down are considered offensive, as they reflect stereotypes considered offensive.
