“Jew” derives from the words “Laavor” and “ever” which means “transitional.”
In my opinion, not all representatives of our people are “Jews” even though historically they possess a special, inner potential, which has not been implemented. They are “sleeping” Jews.
But judging by the conscious actions, it is possible to say that our students belong to the category of Jews. Others are still in a “stand-by” state. They have to be awakened.
