Nope, it's not.

The Jewish symbol is the Star of David which has six points and no circle around it.

The pentagram of course has only five points and is generally surrounded by a circle.

I wore a pentagram to one of my classes and someone asked if I was Jewish. It is not Jewish though. Poor girl.

I think a lot of people are just not aware of the differance. They look at a star and see a star, but don't stop to count the points or notice any extra details. I think there are just as many people who see a Star of David and think it is a pentagram, as there are folks who see a pentagram and think it is a Star of David. They don't know either culture (Jewish or Wiccan) well enough to know that the two stars are different, so they just see a star and think, Jewish or Wiccan based on which one they know about. I would not think they were trying to be rude about it, they may be just wanting to start a conversation and thought they'd impress you by letting you know they knew what the star meant, not realizing they had mistaken it for a different star.

Some people call it a Satanic symbol. Others call it a Jewish symbol. They're just ignorant.

You think that's bad, the symbol of Thelema is just a different type of 6-pointed star.

The only time I don't have to convince them I'm not Jewish is when I need to convince them I'm not Satanic. T_T

it's not Jewish. personally i've never had anyone ask me that. one time at a party this guy noticed the pentagram tattooed on my friends back and went 'Satan, rock on' well after a few my friend and i were a little louder than normal and she snapped at him explaining we are Wiccan and that there is no devil in the craft. the guy asked what the difference was cuz it's all the same. my friend said 'it is not. the biggest difference is we don't believe in Satan.' his response was 'well Satan doesn't believe in you.' and walked away. lol, always love that story. my point is people will see something and assume, sometimes it's harmless, but just calmly explain what it is.
