Honestly, it doesn’t sound like a religious difference thing to me. I would talk to your fi and ask him to talk to her about it.

“I don’t cook and clean enough for FH ( apperently I am supposed to do it all in addition to working a full time job) I don’t do his laundry etc.”

This is the only thing that stands out as something that can be attributed to him being Jewish–Jewish moms are notorious for babying their sons and thinking that they are little princes who need to be taken care of (my DH, for example, lol–his mom would still cut his food for him if he let her!). But this isn’t just Jewish moms–it’s common in Italian families, Asian familes, etc. It honestly sounds like more a personality/communication issues, and I agree with @artbee that you should have your FI talk to her.

You just keep doing what you’re doing. Have FI talk to her. I opened this thinking it was going to be a lot worse. If all she’s doing is saying you don’t clean enough? You’re doing alright.
