MANHATTAN — Maybe it should have been printed on a piece of Matzo.

Heeb Magazine has made a tongue-in-cheek MTA subway map for Jews.

The map features the traditional subway lines along with commentary about certain stops in the Bronx, Manhattan and Brooklyn that have or used to have large Jewish populations. 

“If you’re such a big shot, why are you taking the subway to work?” the Wall Street R-W stop wryly reads.

Subway stops in Queens and Staten Island were completely ignored by the map.

LaGuardia airport is described simply as “A Schlep.”

Don’t expect the map to help you get to famous Jewish landmarks like Katz's Delicatessen, though. You might have to resort to a non-kosher guidebook for that.
