What's with fishballs?

An alien beaming down here for the weekend would get the idea from the JC and chatter in shul that Anglo-Judaism was largely about “Maccabi football, fishballs and antisemitism”, Borehamwood’s Rabbi Naftali Brawer said in a sermon last Shabbat.

The good rabbi is out of touch. Fishballs have long been gefiltered from our pages and a passing Martian is more likely to believe our chosen food is sushi.
