Okay. I'm getting sick and tired of these stupid pictures of Jews. What the hell are these sad , dull pictures? LOL Is this it!? Is this how we Jews are gonna honor our achievements? I'm a Jew from an Ashkenazi mother and Scots-Irish backround from my father. And I gotta say that I'm not proud of the current Wikipedia pictures. So I've already layed down the foundation from some acceptable Jewish figures. I want the Jewish ethnicity to AMAZE. When I'm gonna go on Wikipedia and see the people we represent -- everybody should be like WOWWW. How can such a small nation REPRESENT SO MUCH GOOD, COLOR, SO MUCH LIGHT, SO MUCH BLESSINGS . I want our achievements to be A SLAP IN THE FACE to all the ignorant people out there. You know what the Talmud says my dear Jews Success is the greatest revenge but I can't do this by myself. Because I don't know how to get the damn authorization for the pictures . I'M PRETTY SURE THAT AT LEAST ONE OF YOU IN HERE HAS THE ABILITY TO DO IT. TAKE YOUR TIME MY FELLOWS. BUT ONE THING FOR SURE , TWO THINGS FOR CERTAIN -- THE CURRENT JEW PICTURES ARE UNACCEPTABLE IN RELEVANCE TO THE AMOUNT OF CONTRIBUTIONS WE REPRESENT TO THE WORLD
I'm not coming back here. So do what you want. If you don't wanna help me-- to hell with you people . But live knowing you haven't given 100 percent and you haven't open up your minds to how awesome JEWS truly are.
Nice attempt, but to be honest, it has many problems. The first two lines are biblical figures who either didn't exist in real life, or existed but their life had nothing to do with the mythology around them. It's like the Greeks putting Hercules in.
The rest of the selection is nice, but you forgot Sholem Aleichem and Marc Chagall. Also, Nathalie Portman is a better idea then Bar Rafaeli. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 19:04, 19 October 2013 (UTC)
The article noted that in Ukraine for only 67,000 Jews. But according to the Census of 2001 there 103,600 (I do not know how they counted their number in 2012 because I did not find such information in Ukrainian, even on the State Statistics Committee site). I already wrote about it once, but someone told me that it is necessary to have a uniform data from one source. But I believe that the official census data more reliable. Please correct the data.Шиманський Василь (talk) 08:39, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
There may be much less now than in 2001. After all, there is emigration to Israel (Aliyah). Debresser (talk) 10:38, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
The reason for this large difference in number may have been resulted from the methods the surveys used to consider who is a Jew and who isn't. One census may have included those who were half Jewish, while the other may have used only those who, for example, said they're religiously and ethnically Jewish. What Debresser said is also a possibility, and I add that there's also emigration to the U.S. Yambaram (talk) 22:42, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
As Yambaram wrote, the methodology of counting who is Jewish may vary considerably, which is why it is best to use a single source for all the population numbers. — Malik ShabazzTalk/Stalk 02:29, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Having said that, I actually think exactly the opposite. Because of the fact that the definition of a Jew depends on so many factors and and varies between different forms in Judaism (see Who is a Jew), Jews have no absolute number or definition. And I believe it applies to other groups of people by the way. Therefore, we should always give a low (core) and high (enlarged) estimate. Yambaram (talk) 16:10, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
Pictures of notable Jews on the top of the menu
Nothing against Natalie Portman, but I really do not think her picture should be on the pictures of notable Jews area. She's right under Ben-Gurion... I'm a secular Jew, but I have to imagine there are some better modern representatives out there, Daniel Ellsberg? Noam Chomsky (yes I know he was atheist, so was Ben-Gurion), Howard Zinn? 184.108.40.206 (talk) 01:23, 21 November 2013 (UTC)
