* Illya Kuryakin from ''Series/TheManFromUNCLE'' is a [[JewsLoveToArgue snarky]] Ukrainian [[JewishAndNerdy intellectual]] who, when pressed to go undercover as a busker, sings "Hava Nagila". On the other hand, he's blonde, blue-eyed, and has a Gentile name--but on the first hand, there were [[TheGulag several]] [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stalin_and_antisemitism pressing]] reasons for a Jewish family to change their name in the USSR under Stalin.

** It's worth noting that the matrilineal descent rule isn't universal among different sects of Judaism, or even different congregations. Hal would be considered Jewish by most Reform and Reconstructionist congregations, and if he was a Karaite, Lemba, or Ethiopian Jew, he would be ''required'' to have a Jewish father and his mother would be irrelevant.

If the series is set in [[BigApplesauce New York City]] or its [[NoCommunitiesWereHarmed equivalent]], expect a lot of these. About 12% of New Yorkers are Ashkenazi Jews and they've had a great deal of impact on the culture, which is part of the reason why YouHaveToHaveJews.

* ''Theatre/DeathOfASalesman'' has been seriously analyzed for decades [[http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/19/us/on-religion-since-the-opening-curtain-a-debate-is-willy-loman-jewish.html?pagewanted=all (NY Times article)]] on the subject of whether the Lomans were Jewish. ArthurMiller was brought up Jewish and based the character of Willy Loman on his uncle who was a salesman in the Depression. Miller stated in a 1969 interview that Willy Loman's religious or cultural background seemed irrelevant, but acknowledged in the 50th anniversary edition of the play that the Lomans could have been assimilated Jews. Loman lacks any identifying features of a Jewish (or any other) background, but this can be interpreted both ways; either Willy Loman was written without religious or cultural background to act as TheEveryman and represent the broader American experience, or else his conspicuous ''lack'' of these features is a sign of how he abandoned an immigrant past in his drive for UsefulNotes/TheAmericanDream.

*** When the Count performs the song "Hands" on a ''Sesame Street'' children's record, the music in the background sounds like something right out of ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof''.
*** "The Song of the Count" also has a distinct klezmer style to it.
*** It's because most Count's songs are based on csárdás, a traditional Hungarian dance that is usually associated with the Balkans, in the way of Transylvania, in the way of vampires. Count himself has also rather thick Uberwaldian accent, and a bit of comedic aristocratic manners.

** In another episode, Jay goes to inform Duke that he's about to leave for a sabbatical, to which Duke, who apparently, doesn't know what a sabbatical is, replies, "You people sure have a lot of holidays." Of course, Duke also thinks Jay is gay and/or a "human oddity", and settles on referring to people from Guam as "Guammi Bears", so God only knows who he thinks Jay's people are.

Note that having YiddishAsASecondLanguage is a clue but is not conclusive. As Creator/LennyBruce said, all New Yorkers are at least a little Jewish. Having a "Jewish" name ending in -berg, -stein or the like is also evidence but not proof. These names are actually just German names that many Ashkenazi Jews took when required to adopt some type of surname. Authentically Hebrew names will often begin with "Bar" or "Ben," so they're a good tip-off. For Sephardic Jews, a common name is "Garcia", but again that is such a common Hispanic name that by itself it doesn't prove anything.
