Photograph caption dated April 11, 1962 reads, "The Jerry Rosen family of Van Nuys gather around the Seder table with their guests to observe the traditional Passover ceremony. The Rosens celebrate Passover each year by inviting guests of different faiths into their home. Rosen sits at the head of the table while his wife, Lynn, is seated at the other end. Their sons Michael and Alan, and guests actor Victor Buono and his mother follow as Rosen reads the ceremony. The Rosens attended a Catholic dinner in San Diego for Buono and, in turn, invited him and his family to share one of their religious observances."
