I can’t say I agree with you as to the relevance of his being Jewish. “So new?” strikes me as street slang for “and this surprises you?”, so I would not equate Nathan with Tevye, Fanny or Tateh, to name a few.

Honestly, I can't really anyone ever saying something like "so nu" (btw, authentically pronounced "zo" not "so") unless they know their yiddish - and that's mainly going to be someone Jewish. I've never heard the English phrase "so new" as a street slang kind of colloquialism outside of that. Your mileage may differ, but...
