Is this a Jewish stereotype?

I was talking to my (Jewish) therapist about how greedy family members descended like vultures when my grandmother died. He mentioned that, coming from a Jewish family, he knew what that was like. Is being greedy vultures after death a common Jewish stereotype?

    Being greedy and money hungry in general is a Jewish stereotype

    Being greedy vultures all the time is a common Jewish Stereotype.

    Yes, it's a stereotype. One he should be ashamed of perpetuating, BTW.

    Every Jew I've ever known was greedy, money hungry, and cheap.

    Jews being greedy is a stereotype.

    However, I will say my husband is Jewish and I have never seen more respectful and humble funerals and mourning periods.

    I would say the Christian family I grew up in would put ravenous vultures to shame.

    So its yet another stereotype that is untrue.
