The Yiddish Accent Still being Made Fun Even After Those with that Accent died off 40 years Ago. Those who spoke English with an Yiddish accent came to America pre World War II for the most part and for TV Commercials To Keep this accent alive is outrageous. Nobody born in this century ever heard an east European Jew talk. Italian ..German & Irish accents will always be around since the host country still exists with their mother tongue.However Jews do not have that option since the pale of Jewish Yiddish speaking settlement in Eastern Europe no longer exists. To make fun of that accent to day is shear Jew Hatred and perpetuates a stereo type and helps keeps Anti Semitism alive.
