As luck would have it, I was reading the scripts from some of Jack's Las Vegas work in the late 60s-early 70s last night. And I came across a couple lines (quoting from memory):

"I have no luck at gambling or in the stock market. Last year I got a tip, and bought 5,000 shares of Arabian Oil. And just six days later, my own people put me out of business."

"One year I played Santa Claus coming down the chimney, and ooh the things I saw people doing! And on Christmas Eve. Chanukah I could understand."

So go figure...Jack apparently occasionally mention his Judaism later in his career.
