When a non-Jew is considered 'down with the Jews' and is given some degree of leeway by his Jewish friends to make Jew jokes and/or latkes.

A portmanteau of shtetl, the term for Jewish ghettos in Europe, and ghetto pass, a term expressing a similar concept with regard to African Americans.
"I get a shtetl pass. I once taught a Jewish girlfriend remedial Yiddish." ~Actual quote from the internet

"Abraham Lincoln gets a shtetl pass. He freed the slaves, and he was named Abraham."
