After hearing about the good jobs his friends' lawyers and accountants are doing, Peter becomes fixated on the idea of Jews as mathematical and legal geniuses. Hoping to give Chris a chance for a better future than he can provide as a Catholic, Peter decides to have his son convert to Judaism at a quickie Las Vegas Bar Mitzvah in order to turn him smart.

Did You Know?
Due to a controversy over its subject matter, this episode, a Jewish Hannukah special, was originally produced for season 2 (as production episode 2.5) to be broadcast in December 2000, but wasn't broadcast until November 2003, almost 2 years after the show's cancellation.
(Since the show wasn't picked up again until early 2005, this episode (commonly listed as 3.22), should ideally be in a season by itself as episode 4.1, and season 4 and on should really be season 5 and on.)
Similarly, a Christmas special, also considered controversial, was made for around the same time (production episode 2.3), to be broadcast in season 2 around Xmas 2000, but was not actually broadcast until season 3 just before Xmas 2001 (as episode 3.16). See more

They better not be expecting us to give money, because I gave at church last Sunday, and I'm pretty sure it all goes to the same God.
