Solution Preview

As you look at defining characteristics of Jewish people and culture, you might look at how multiple identities seem to occur. However, the idea of one God as a key part. Another major aspect is that Jews deem themselves as the chosen people of God. Other traits seem to be a strong inclination toward "natural sciences and technology, as can be seen from the amount of Jewish Nobel-prize winners" (http://jewish.org/). In sum, a key trait is the fact that religion and race "form an inseparable whole in Judaism" (http://www.jewishtribalreview.org/14who.htm).
