Welcome to Kutshers
Kutsher's Country Club is the last surviving Jewish resort in the Catskills. One of the legendary Borscht Belt hotels during its heyday, Kutsher's has been family-owned and operated for over 100 years. Exploring the full Dirty Dancing-era Catskills experience-- and how it changed American pop culture in the comedy, sports and vacation industries-- this documentary captures a last glimpse of a lost world as it disappears before our eyes.

The series is free, but audience members are encouraged to bring cans of food as well as new toys and school supplies, which will be donated to such community organizations as All Faiths Food Bank, Toys for Tots and Title 1 schools.
