Abraham Kabibble is actually a car dealer but he’s mostly preoccupied by anything but that. Versatile Abie is an agent on his own account. He speaks English with a Yiddish accent and German grammar, and dreams of seeing German Jews integrated into American society. Created in 1914 as the hero of Harry Hershfield’s eponymous comic newspaper strip, Abie ultimately became the best-known Jewish comic character of his day. He plays on common stereotypes of Jewish immigrants’ lives in New York.
