Thank you to everyone who made Shabbat at Sundance Film Festival possible
Shabbat Lounge at Sundance is a project of love – for Shabbat, for hospitality and for film. Creating a lounge with kosher food in Park City is not at easy project. We have to arrange delivery of food, volunteers and supplies from around the country. Additionally, we want to make sure everyone can attend, which requires enormous effort to provide multiple events during the weekend.
The team behind the project hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!
