Plot Overview

Peter gets swindled by a phony salesmen, buying volcano insurance with Lois's rainy day money. After hearing about Cleveland and Quagmire's financial success due to financial help from people with Jewish-sounding names, Peter deduces that he should have a Jew help him with his money problems. He uses the power of singing a prayer to summon Max Weinstein, a Jewish man who agrees to help Peter with his money. After seeing the power of Judiasm, Peter becomes determined to convert his son Chris to become Jewish to ensure his success, and takes him to Las Vegas. Lois, after finding out what happened, stop them.
