Landmarks of the Jewish faith, how

To the suburbs the people are moving
day after day,
Finding new homes come what may,
Leaving behind synagogues they used
to attend
With religious memories on which
they did depend.
The question arises. What about the
"devout Jew?"
His synagogue is sold, what shall
he do?
His tradition he loves, he has his pride;
On the Sabbath. he surely will not
With the children in the suburbs. he
cannot live

What about the rabbis, what can they

Everybody has a different reason
for coming to Kutsher's
in the summer.

Some people come for a good rest. And they get it. Lounging

on pool-side chaises, breakfasting in a luxurious air-conditioned

room, taking leisurely strolls through our beautiful countryside.
Some people come for golf. And they get it. 7,157 yards, 18
holes right on the premises. With 3 tees at each hole, golf carts,
putting greens, driving range, and PGA Pro Steve Downey curing
golf ills.
Some people come for sports. And they get it. Ice skating on
our indoor rink. Tennis on all-weather courts. Riding on our own
aod. .
Bros ls
S om e people come for the night life. And they get it. Watching
way entertainment in 2 swingin' niteclubs. Dancing 'till
dawn to 4 great bands. Late shows. Intimate revues.
Some people come to get away from the kids. They bring them
along and p0000f, we maka them disappear. Into a swingin' world
of their own.
If you can't think of a reason to come to Kutsher's, give us a
call ... we'll be glad to suggest a few.
