JEWRY. The term occurs only in the KJV where it stands for Judea (̓Ιουδαία, G2677,
In the course of time the term changed from a geographical to an ethnic description. It now connotes: (1) the Jewish quarters in a town or city (e.g., Old Jewry in London); (2) the religion of the Jewish people, i.e., Judaism (this however is not common); (3) the Jewish people in the ethnic and cultural sense as a distinct community.
