Lou, religions include all sorts of people, and wherever there are people there will be people who overvalue money. I don't see what it has to do with Judaism. I daresay there are a few Christian leaders whose tables Jesus would overturn. I think what he was objecting to was using religion to make money, in excess of what he considered reasonable.

I think there is some misperception among some Christians that Jesus' criticisms were directed at "Jews". I see Jesus' criticisms directed at Jews who weren't being very good Jews. Who weren't living up to the ideals of their Jewish faith. I see Jesus as addressing us all, no matter what our faith, to be better people and to love and serve God with all our hearts. If he addressed Jews in particular, it was because those were his people, and because he loved his people and his God.
