IS being a Jew a religion or a nationality? In otherwords is a person called a Jew because of where he/she originates or because of the person's religion or belief?
i think being a jew is a religion, because anybody can become a jew. what people mostly mistake about is the difference between a jew and a hebrew, hebrew is the ethinicity and jewish or judaism is the faith. so if you convert judaism, you become a jew although your ethnicity is not a hebrew, but you cannot be a hebrew even if you accept the jewish fatih, you will be a jew but not a hebrew. i hope i answered your question.
