* As a Jew and a historian, I must respond to "History Distinguishes Religion, Race" (Letters, July 18). Marianne Connolly made a number of goofy errors.
She claimed: "The race of Israelites (Jews) is Hebrew." Wrong. The language is Hebrew and there is no such "race." Jews are blue-eyed, blond Europeans and jet-black Africans, just as Christians are.
