3. We are a people. Not a race.

A person can become Jewish by joining the Jewish people. In Jewish law, the person is Jewish if born of a Jewish mother (well, Reform Judaism accepts either parent) not because of "Jewish genome."

The idea that "Jewish" is a race was conceived in Germany by Jew haters.

But the Jewish people is a multiracial people that includes Eastern European Jews, Arab Jews, Chinese Jews, Indian Jews, Beta Israel, Jews from the Iberian Peninsula, Latin American Jews, etc.
