Is discussing finances a taboo in your community?

Okay so I know discussing finances is seen as tacky or taboo in a lot of cultures, but it definitely is something that’s seen as super taboo in Jewish culture, right?

I’m also wondering if any can expand on why it’s considered tacky, or why Jews are more cautious about discussing finances than other cultures may be.

I grew up in a rich neighborhood with a large orthodox community, and I remember this one conversations I had with a kid in my grade. Someone had been bragging about bar mitzvah money and I had told him that he was being tacky.

Someone else overheard the convo and asked me if I was Jewish because I said that. The boy who asked me if I was jewish was also Jewish.
