Since the 1920s, the Catskill Mountains have gained a reputation for being the summer destination for Jewish families who want to enjoy a temporary escape from the stresses of city life, through indulging in outdoor activities like going on hike trails, or basking in the calming environment of the mountains. In fact, the region earned the moniker, the “Jewish Alps” and the “Borsch Belt”, for the sheer volume of people traveling here during the summer season. However, in recent years, the region has seen fewer visits from Jewish holidaymakers, as other areas have become more sensitive about the different cultural, religious, and personal food and lifestyle choices of guests.

Nonetheless, there remain some establishments in the Catskills that continue to uphold the beliefs and traditions that the region has been known for. Book kosher-friendly hotels in the Catskills now for your upcoming trip.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and access to synagogues and Kosher food. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 18, 2024.
