From 1958 he also lectured at Bar-Ilan University.

He was editor of Leshonenu (the organ of the Hebrew Language Academy) from 1965. Kutscher also translated into Hebrew the German text of a number of art books, such as J. Bab's work on Rembrandt (1952), and works by others on V. Van Gogh (1953), and A. Rodin (1948). A collection of Kutscher's research work in Hebrew and Aramaic edited by Ze'ev Ben Ḥayyim, Aharon Dotan, and Gad Ben Ami Zarfaty, was published posthumously in 1977. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Kressel, Leksikon, 2 (1967), 738.
