To call someone A ______ defines them soley as the characteristic that you are describing. To call somea Jew in this case takes the adjective and makes it a nomnative. used as an adjective with the -ish, the assumption is that there's an unspoken noun, (man/woman, person, human) not just "a Jew". The adjectival form of Jew is Jewish. Same as China/Chinese. Huge difference between Chinaman and Chinese man, right? The plural, Jews, also connotes different negative associations but less so simply because English generally allows pluralized nouns to be used differently.
