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. 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. Below is a list of some of the top kosher-friendly hotels in the Catskills, New York, that you can choose from. Book now for your upcoming trip.
