FILM: Welcome to Kutsher's: The Last Catskills Resort
Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center
Houston, TX
Share this event:


Kutsher's Country Club is the last surviving Jewish resort in the Catskills, and in its heyday was one of the legendary "Borscht Belt" hotels. The resorts were a Jewish vacation paradise, with a significant influence on entertainment, stand-up comedy and sports. In this enjoyable documentary, watch Wilt Chamberlain playing ball and working as a bellhop at Kutsher's; laugh with Freddie Roman as his classic routine still brings down the house; see ice skating instructor extraordinaire Celia Duffy hop up on the Zamboni; and marvel at the abundance of hearty kosher feasts. "Kutsher's is inexorably tied to all of American pop culturewhich people wouldn't necessarily think of as Jewish or as rising from the CatskillsThis is what we think is so fascinating." Ian Rosenberg, co-producer
