The word Jewish originates from Jews. The literal meaning of the word Jews is the 'Children of Israel'. The origins of the Jewish people dates back to around the eighteenth century BC in Israel. The religious faith of the Jewish people is known as Judaism. The Jewish people are quite orthodox in their cultural and religious beliefs, which are pretty much co-related to one another.
Israel has their majority population as Jews. Besides, the Jewish population is well spread in other parts of the world too like USA, UK, France, Canada etc. According to Demographic studies, the world population of the Jewish people has risen gradually over a period of time after being at the peak before the Second of the two World Wars. Jewish faith is quite resistant to converting and it is not easily accepted by the Jewish society. Such mainstream jingoism is one of the reasons behind the meager population of Jews all over the world.
