This understanding is created already in 1888. So that understanding is setting the frame for our understanding. And since then ripperologists have been trying to explain a content about jews.
This thread is based on a false premise. Since 1975 ripperologists have, amongst other things, been discussing whether 'Juwes' was a reference to the three ruffians, Jubela, Jubelo and Jubelum, who were said to have murdered Hiram Abiff in Masonic folklore. This theory first appeared in 'The Ripper File' by Elwyn Jones and John Lloyd and then in Stephen Knight's 'Jack the Ripper: The Final Solution' where it was said that the murders were conducted according to Masonic ritual.

I have seen discussion of all sorts of other meanings on this forum other than Jews.

If the OP thinks he knows the meaning of the sentence then he should go ahead and explain it. I really don't think we need this 'experiment' which is nothing more than has already been done for the last forty years at least.

Like no-one ever thought to look in the dictionary.
