* Some believe that Creator/PeterSellers' overbearing mother was partly responsible for his personal issues. The biopic ''The Life and Death of Peter Sellers'' makes it look like she was almost single-handedly responsible.
* Comedian Amy Borkowsky's mother is such a hilariously extreme example of this that she made a habit of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nE7CshexBmg recording her mother's phone messages.]]
* The Israeli Merkava tank, was once described as "A cross between a mass of rumbling destruction and a Jewish mother".
** Which is scarier?
** The Merkava has a spacious crew compartment with rear-opening doors that can, in extremis, welcome an entire infantry section into its loving bosom and keep them safe... and once they're in there and the doors clang shut, they're prisoners.
* UsefulNotes/AlbertEinstein's mother, Pauline Einstein, seems to have been one. Not only was she very proud to be Jewish, but she was also brutally against Albert's relationship with Mileva Maric (who would become his first wife) for a lot of reasons, but not least because she was of a different nationality and religion (Serbian-Orthodox). Different attempts to dissusade her son from marrying Mileva included throwing ridiculous tantrums and trying to guilt-trip him. Nevertheless though, Albert disobeyed her and had two sons with Mileva Maric.
** But after his divorce from Mileva, Albert got re-married to his cousin Elsa Löwenthal. Despite how it would count as incest to many people today, Pauline was alledgely much happier about ''that'' union (even if they wouldn't be HappilyMarried either).
* The famous violinist [[http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/3637593/I-only-felt-loved-when-I-played-well.html Yehudi Menuhin's]] mother who "ruled her children with a rod of iron".
* The more positive side of the trope is revealed with a [[http://www.tabletmag.com/scroll/162095/jewish-grandma-to-gay-grandson-stay-away-from-sochi Jewish grandmother's warning]] to her gay grandson (who was traveling) not to go to Russia for the [[UsefulNotes/OlympicGames 2014 Olympic Games]], because she doesn't want anything to happen to him. Turns out he wasn't going anywhere near Russia, but still, awww...
* Actor and comedian Milton Berle blamed the breakup of his marriage on his mother. He said:
--> "My mother never resented me going out with a girl, but if I had more than three dates with one girl, Mama found some way to break it up."

** Sylvia's mother Yetta acts like a typical dotting Jewish Grandmother to Fran and the Sheffield children and occasionally like a snarky Jewish Mother to Sylvia.

* ''Series/TheNanny'': Fran Fine's mother Sylvia ''and'' Sylvia's mother Yetta, who acts as both Jewish Grandmother to Fran and the Sheffield children and the occasional Jewish Mother to Sylvia.

to:

* ''Series/TheNanny'': ''Series/TheNanny'':
**
Fran Fine's mother Sylvia ''and'' is one of the best examples in a modern sitcom. She is very Jewish, has a need to control her daughter and push her into marriage (any man will do at this point) and is keen on using guilt-tripping to get Fran to do what she wants.
**
Sylvia's mother Yetta, who Yetta acts as both like a typical dotting Jewish Grandmother to Fran and the Sheffield children and the occasional sarcastic Jewish Mother to Sylvia.Sylvia.
** Depsite how Fran complains about how overbearing her mother is, she can some times show similar traits herself when it comes to the Sheffield children. It is difficult for her to let Grace go on a play date by herself for the first time, and she also tries to use guilt-trip on Maggie on occasions.



* in the Bible, the book of Judges (4:1-31) tells the story of [[MamaBear Deborah]], who leads the men of Israel to victory over the foe, berating and shaming them into picking up weapons and fighting. She explicitly says of herself after the victory;
--> Village life in Israel ceased, ceased until I, Deborah, arose, arose as a mother in Israel.
Never get between a Jewish mother and her children.

** An OC in the [[Creator/AAPessimal same author]]'s ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' tales comes from a small country in the Circle Sea where the parent religion of Omnianism still tenaciously holds on. The Cenotians respect kosher law, have a religion hedged with taboos and commandments, know the secret of creating golems, and have an origin myth of being exiled from their homeland to the banks of a river in Babylon - then finding themselves in a different world entirely, led there by a relative of the Witch of Endor called Naomi Ogg. They believe their G-d got ''really'' annoyed and chose to ratchet up the exile factor in a big way. Student Assassin Rivka-ben-Divorah is a typical Cenotian who complains to her best friend about her overbearing and protective mother who appreciates she wants to get a steady job in a prestigious profession, but demands she marries a good Om-fearing Cenotian boy in a profession, and buckles down to giving her lots of grandchildren and keeping a kosher kitchen as soon as can be arranged. ''And promise me that however many people you inhume, you respect kashrut and attend Temple every Saturday!''
