* Harold from ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold''. In one episode, he is lectured by his rabbi for stealing a ham, with more emphasis on breaking Jewish dietary restrictions than the theft itself.

* Powerful TV producer (and ''major'' prima donna) Alan Brady on ''TheDickVanDykeShow'' was implied to be Jewish here and there (and, interestingly, was portrayed by real-life Jew Carl Reiner, who also produced ''The Dick Van Dyke Show'' itself). In one episode, Rob, Buddy, and Sally have him stay after work to discuss something with him, and he offhandedly complains that he's late for a bar mitzvah ceremony.

* Abby, in ''TheBabySittersClub'', is Jewish and does get a Bat Mitzvah, but apart from it being mentioned about her as a stated fact ("Abby is Jewish"), it gets little attention. Dawn also mentions in one book that one of their sitting charges, Nancy Dawes, is Jewish; it actually had relevance to the plot because it was the VerySpecialEpisode book about racism.

** Francine's family explicitly doesn't follow a Kosher diet so that adds to the fuel.

** Francine's family explicitly doesn't follow a Kosher diet so that adds to the fuel. A ''Postcards From Buster'' episode with a devout Jewish family has one scene where Francine points out that [[TruthInTelevision not all Jewish people]] follow kosher laws to the letter. However, in the holiday episode, clueless Mr. Crosswire gifts the Frensky family with a ham, which Mr. Frensky confusingly accepts.

* Brenda Song in both the Made for TV movie ''Stuck in the Suburbs'' and ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''; in both she mentions celebrating Chanuka (though in ''The Suite Life'' she just says, "And give up on 8 days of presents, are you nuts?"). In ''Stuck In The Suburbs'', she mentions having a Bat Mitzvah.

* Parodied in ''Series/ThirdRockFromTheSun.'' The Solomons, after attempting to decide their ethnicity, eventually just figure they should be Jewish because their landlady assumed they were, based on their last name. Being aliens living undercover on Earth of course, they know nothing about the culture in the slightest and it never comes up again.
** It actually does come up several times, but in only minor instances (like Harry and Dick trying to HandWave Dick's attempted kidnapping with a large sack as a Jewish wedding tradition: The Sacking Of The Groom.)

** It is known that Jerry is Jewish, he's just non-practicing, but he comments in one episode after a faux-pas asking a Chinese-American postman where the nearest Chinese Restaurant was, he commented "If someone asks me where Jerusalem is, you don't see me flying off the handle!" And while Frank Costanza is a first-generation Italian-American, Estelle is heavily implied to be Jewish as well. Kramer argued vigorously against circumcision, so it can be expected that he is not.
*** Kramer says he isn't Jewish in the same episode Elaine did.

* Kitty from ''XMenEvolution''. The only evidence that she's Jewish is a scene of her lighting the menorah in her home in the ChristmasEpisode... and, of course, being very definitely Jewish in the comic the show was based on.
* Mipsy in ''AsToldByGinger'' mentions transferring funds from a Bat Mitzvah fund in one episode.

* Tammy from Series/BobsBurgers. Aside from having a Bat Mitzvah episode, she otherwise has some elements of a JewishAmericanPrincess, albeit downplayed.
