A JEW CALLED SAMMY by John McCann (1962)

"In this comedy, the siblings in the Cartney household in Dublin are having a hard time maturing and adapting to modern life. Their emptyheaded mother and ever-absent father are of no use. So Sammy Rosenberg, their Jewish next-door neighbour and close friend of the youngest son, steps in to help sort out their muddles. Two suitors for the daughters of the household are distrustful of Sammy but their anti-semitism is challenged and discouraged."
