                                  Answer:
   
   The expression "the Torah world" and "Torah Jew" tends to be used
   primarily by the "yeshivish" world, as other groups prefer other
   buzzwords. But many other Jews object to the term, as they also claim
   to be true to Torah principles in their practice.
   
   In general, if someone dislikes a particular term, switch to another
   term which conveys the same information.
