Question About Jewish Creators of the Golden Age

I’m sure by now we all know that the Golden Age of comic book history is replete with Jewish creators. Superman, Batman, Captain America, The Spirit – all created by Jewish writers and artists.

In addition, I think it’s pretty safe to say that most comic book artists during the Golden Age would rather have been doing comic strips (Will Eisner being a notable exception since he was running his own shop), but they were too young to be doing a comic strip (or perhaps not good enough).

However, I recently read somewhere the suggestion that another reason these creators were not snatched up by the comic strip syndicates was because they were Jewish.

Do you think that’s an accurate claim (it doesn’t sound right to me, but obviously I could be wrong)?
