Terrific post, Alan, thank you! There was never any doubt in my mind that Nathan (and a good many other characters) were Jewish.

As for “nu”—my late mother in law could use it, depending on context and her inflection, in a dozen different ways, from utterly sarcastic to fatalism to asking for further details. A versatile term!
