Is meowth Jewish?

he keeps saying "oy vey" in Sun and Moon anime and it's really confusing?
Update: I mean it's weird cause there's no trace of real religions in the Pokemon world. Maybe Meowth is hinted to be Israeli? But he's from Kanto so he's Japanese : O
Update 2: to be fair his accent in the english dub makes no sense as well
