Nevertheless there are other ways to get these numbers, and this is my collection of them. See my Asian - Jewish comparisons for a comparison
with the top Asian ethnic groups, the Chinese and Indians. Jews are generally stronger compared to Asian Americans as a group, but they win some and lose some vs. Chinese, and the Indians are generally stronger in most numbers. [WARNING!] This data is meant to document positive contributions of Jews [GOOD], not generate animosity towards successful minority groups [EVIL]. There may be valid reasons to be annoyed at any ethnic group, but anti-semitism is NOT nice.

Jews are among the most highly rated in IQ of any ethnic or religious
groups. Beyond the usual cultural explanation, there is a school of
thought that maybe these guys ARE selected to be smarter. There is
some thought that cultural selection which favored rabbis or academics
over a few thousand years might be enough to account for this
difference. The other explanation is that there is no such thing as IQ
and all ethnic groups are equal in all talents by definition.

PAPER SAYS SOCIALIZATION OF JEWS SELECTED FOR HIGH IQ ASH. JEWS
The Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence
Abstract: hypothesis that the unique demography and sociology of
Ashkenazi in medieval Europe selected strongly for intelligence. The
usury laws provided a unique niche, and Ashkenazi literacy and closure
to inward gene flow led to a social environment in which there was
high fitness payoff to intelligence, specifically verbal and
mathematical intelligence but not spatial ability.
Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average IQ of any ethnic group. They
score 0.75 to 1.0 standard deviation above the general European
average, which corresponds to an IQ score around 112-115. Thishas been
seen in many studies (Backman.1972, Levinson 1959, Romanoff 1976),
although a recent review concludes that the advantage is slightly
less, only half a standard deviation (Lynn, 2004).... are hugely
overrepresented in those jobs and accomplishments with the highest
cognitive demands. During the 20th century, they made up about 3% of
the US population, but won 27%of the US Nobel science prizes and 25%
of the ACM Turing awards. They account for more than half of world
chess champions.Ashkenazi Jews have an unusual ability profile, as
well as higher than average IQ. They have high verbal and mathematical
scores, while their visuospatial abilities are typically somewhat
lower (by aboutone half a standard deviation) than the European
average (Levinson 1977, Levinson and Block 1977).... great success in
mathematicsand literature, more typical results in representational
painting, sculpture, and architecture... non-Ashkenazi Jews do not
have high average IQ test scores (Ortar 1967), nor are they
overrepresented in cognitively demanding fields.
COCHRAN SAYS SELECTION IN MONEYLENDING CLASS LED TO SELECTION OF SMART JEWS
How the Ashkenazi Got Their Smarts
Ashkenazi Jews have the highest average IQ of any ethnic group. They
score 0.75 to 1.0 standard deviations above the general European
average, which corresponds to an IQ score around 112-115. During the
20th century, they made up about 3% of the US population, but won 27%
of the US Nobel science prizes and 25% of the ACM Turing awards. They
account for more than half of world chess champions.
Only the Ashkenazi had low gene flow and a preponderance of
occupations with high IQ elasticity for hundreds of years. That is
enough to have caused the IQ increase that we observe.

1500 BCE Hebrews move into Israel

A Brief Early History in Maps
Mid East Web
Canaan had been a collection of city-states, tributary to the Egyptian
Pharoah, as attested to in the Tel- El Amarna tablets. The breakup of
the Egyptian empire beginning about 1500 BCE made possible the
invasion of the Hebrews.
After the first Jewish rebellion and fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD, large
numbers of Jews were exiled.

* The Romans moved the Jews physically out of the region. Some
remained, of course, but the political structure was gone, and Judah
was no longer a nation. The Assyrians accomplished the same thing
with Israel some years earlier.
* The Persians took Jerusalem in 614, and tried to impose their brand of
paganism. 60,000 or so were killed and another 35,000 or so were taken
from Jerusalem as prisoners.

jews have been simultaneously ardent propagators of socialism and the
targeted victims of socialism. Trotsky was the organizer of the
Bolshevik Revolution, and anti-Semitism became a pillar of the
Stalinist regime in Russia and Eastern Europe. In 1918, the chief
rabbi of Moscow is said to have told Trotsky (born Bronstein): “The
Trotskys made the revolutions, and the Bronsteins pay for it.” In
Russia, this history keeps repeating itself. Today, many Russians are
persuaded that the Bolshevik Revolution was a Jewish plot, and because
many of the new tycoons are Jewish, capitalism is accused of being a
Jewish plot as well. Around and around we go.
Guy Sorman The Paradox of Jewish Capitalists Are the beneficiaries of
free markets also its most ardent opponents? 5 February 2010
Capitalism and the Jews, by Jerry Z. Muller (Princeton, 272 pp.,
$24.95) In a 1972 lecture, “Capitalism and the Jews,” Nobel laureate
Milton Friedman presented a paradox: Jews “owe an enormous debt to
free enterprise and competitive capitalism,” he said, but “for at
least the past century the Jews have been consistently opposed to
capitalism and have done much on an ideological level to undermine
it.” According to historian Jerry Muller, Friedman’s paradox may make
for a great headline, but it cannot be substantiated. Only the first
premise is true—there is little doubt that capitalism has benefited
Jews. And as Muller shows, there is equally little doubt that Jews
have excelled at developing capitalism in the West.
Jerry Z. Muller: Capitalism and the Jews
Jews and the Burden of Money By CATHERINE RAMPELL CAPITALISM AND THE
JEWS By Jerry Z. Muller 267 pp. Princeton University Press. $24.95
The question of why so many Jews have been so good at making money is
a touchy one. For hundreds of years, it has been fraught with
suspicion, denial, resentment, guilt, self-hatred and violence. No
wonder Jews and gentiles alike are so uncomfortable confronting Jewish
capitalistic competence. Still, in his slim essay collection
"Capitalism and the Jews," Jerry Z. Muller presents a provocative and
accessible survey of how Jewish culture and historical accident
ripened Jews for commercial success and why that success has earned
them so much misfortune.
From Aristotle through the Renaissance (and then again in the 19th
century, thanks to that Jew-baiting former Jew Karl Marx), thinkers
believed that money should be considered sterile, a mere means of
exchange incapable of producing additional value. Only labor could be
truly productive, it was thought, and anyone who extracted money from
money alone--that is, through interest--must surely be a parasite, or
at the very least a fraud. The Bible also contended that charging
interest was sinful,

One of the primary objections or point of admiration of Jews is their
remarkable level of overrepresentation in so many desirable fields.
Personally, if a group is stpendously successful, they should be
celebrated rather than reviled for it. The census leaves out religion
because of fears it would expose Jewish overrepresentation.

MattNF at aol.com observes that over-representation
might be even higher than it appears in most statistics:
About 40 percent of the lawyers at the most prestigious New York and
Washington law firms are Jewish (this is from Seymour Martin Lipset,
a highly respected, but ridiculously centrist and uninnovative,
23 percent of the 500 wealthiest Americans are Jewish, according to
Lipset. In Canada, as many as 23 of the 100 wealthiest Canadians are
Jewish, according to the Rich 100 list in Canadian Business magazine

their share of the population, at 3 percent.

Myths of the Middle East
by Joseph Farah
In the Six-Day War, Israel captured Judea, Samaria and East
Jerusalem. But they didn’t capture these territories from Yasser Arafat.
They captured them from Jordan’s King Hussein.
What about Islam’s holy sites? There are none in Jerusalem.
The first time the name was used was in 70 A.D. when the Romans
committed genocide against the Jews, smashed the Temple and declared
the land of Israel would be no more. From then on, the Romans
promised, it would be known as Palestine.
Who's Behind the War on Orthodox Jewish Schools?
Kevin MadDonald on "jewish eugenics"
2016, a poll showed Trump beating Hillary Clinton 66% to 22% among Orthodox Jews. This wasn’t as unusual as it sounds. In New York City, Orthodox Jewish neighborhoods light up as islands in a lefty sea. Romney won over 90% of the vote in some Orthodox Jewish areas. Traditional religious beliefs are associated with conservative politics among Jews the same way that they are among Christians. 60% of Jews who attended weekly religious services disapproved of Obama while those who didn’t, mostly supported him. Why do American Jews lean much more to the left? Because only 11% of American Jews attend weekly synagogue services. Well below the 40% national average. Only 34% of American Jews are certain that they believe in G-d. What do they believe in? When asked what it means to be Jewish, 56% mentioned social justice, 42% comedy and only 19% percent mentioned anything involving religion. Meanwhile 63% of Israeli Jews believe “completely” in G-d. Last year, Trump’s approval rating among Orthodox Jews was at 71%. The American Jewish Committee’s Survey wrote the results up glumly as “We have seen the future, and it looks Orthodox".
