Paul Shaffer Part II (Link)

"Dave Letterman, of course, has also been a great friend. When I learned that he required a quintuple bypass, I immediately called the chief rabbi of the state of Israel to make a m'shabeirach, a special prayer for the sick.
"Is he Jewish?" asked the rabbi.
"No," I said, "but he's in show business."
"Close enough," said the rabbi. "I'm praying as we speak."
The prayer worked, and Dave came through like a champ."

We'll Be Here For The Rest Of Our Lives By Paul Shaffer, pages 296-297
