Remembering Wonderful Holidays in the Catskills, with the Rabbis Hammerman

Tue, November 24 at 8:00 pm9:30 pm

In its heyday, The “Borscht Belt” served as a getaway for the East Coast Jewish Community starting in the 1940’s. Families would spend Summers, vacations and holidays away from the hustle and bustle of the city. While these Kosher resorts in the Catskill mountains are no more, so many of us have wonderful memories of “Borscht Belt” vacations?
Join Rabbi Yael Hammerman (Ansche Chesed) and Rabbi Eytan Hammerman (Jewish Community Center of Harrison) for an evening of reminiscence of our shared Catskills memories. The Hammerman family would spend Thanksgiving each year at Grossingers, The Concord and Kutsher’s. What was your favorite Catskill kosher resort hotel?
We will watch part of the movie “Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort” (available on Amazon Prime) and share, all of us, some of our favorite memories from the “good old days.”
Bonus points if you come prepared for a L’chaim with an actual glass of Borscht – and we may even have some special guest appearances – stay tuned!!
