Pfc. Morton Gutstadt tried out the gefilte fish of Mrs. Dave Starr..., 1952

Description: Text on back of photograph: Passover 1952 in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Dave Starr, 1575 Federal. Pfc. Morton Gutstadt of Fitzsimons Army Hospital tried out the gefilte fish of Mrs. Dave Starr with master of the house Mr. Dave Starr looking on. Pfc. Morton Gutstadt demonstrates complete satisfaction with the offering. This scene was reported many times in Jewish homes in Denver during 1952 where families responded so generously to the urgings of the Denver Jewish Armed Services Committee which coordinates its work through the USO-Jewish Welfare Board Mt. Area office. Both BMH Synagogue and Temple Emanuel extended invitations to servicemen to communal seders.
