Synopsis >

Just as Larry is feeling comfortable with himself and the show, Hank's trip to a synagogue convinces him to embrace his ties to Judaism. Although Arthur asks that he keep his religious convictions a private matter, it isn't long before Hank is asking that some potentially offensive jokes be cut when his rabbi, Marcy Klein, pays a visit to the show. Meanwhile, Larry's own sense of well-being is lifted even higher by his new office chair. During Rabbi Klein's visit, it's clear that Hank is smitten with her. While admitting that he hasn't been particularly observant, he claims his intentions to be faithful from now on are pure. So, over Arthur's objections, Hank insists on wearing a yarmulke Marcy gave him on-camera. Meanwhile, Larry has his new chair wired to shock anyone who uses it without permission. When the network executives summon Arthur for a meeting, Hank barges in to voice his outrage at the idea that he keep his religious beliefs off the set. And despite all efforts to convince him otherwise, he continues to wear his yarmulke. While he had hoped his principled stance would impress Sheila, Hank is surprised when she has no interest in a romantic relationship. So, when he begins to receive some negative fan mail, Hank quickly abandons his newfound religious beliefs, as Beverly gets a surprise while secretly using Larry's new chair.
