The King of Schnorrers by Israel Zangwill
Manasseh da Costa is a schnorrer (beggar) who lives on the charitable contributions of the Jews of late 18th-century London. But Manasseh is far from being a humble panhandler for, as every schnorrer knows, supporting the poor is a commandment from God (a mitzvah) not just a favour. And as the descendant of Portuguese Jews who had lived in England for many generations, Manasseh is the social superior of those newly arrived from Eastern Europe (called `Tedesco'), even his wealthy patron Joseph Grobstock. As this hilarious satire concludes the ever-audacious Manasseh strikes a blow for tolerancewhile helping himself along the way. Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) was born in England of Russian parents. He was the author of "Children of the Ghetto," a novel set in London's heavily Jewish East End.
