WENDY’S SHABBAT

Wendy's Shabbat

The short documentary film is about a group of Jewish Senior citizens who celebrate the weekly Sabbath (Shabbat) at the local Wendy’s fast food restaurant with Hebrew blessings over burgers and fries.
This is a story of rediscovering the joys of community again in older age, and in the longing for ritual, however unorthodox it may appear. There are themes of love, of ritual and of community — all within the context of an adorable scene at Wendy’s.

“Shabbat transforms you from the ordinary to the extraordinary.”
_Rabbi Zeldin
