The film premiered at Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and the crowd was utterly kvelling. As a modern take on what it means to be Jewish, 'Wendy's Shabbat' shows a cultural bond that is deeper than the deep-fried food. Led by Isaiah Zeldin, perhaps the oldest practicing rabbi in the country, this feast proves it doesn't matter where you are or what you are eating, all that matters is how you practice.

“Am I religious? No, I’m traditional,” Mahler said in the film. It's a sentiment that has become commonplace in many Jewish homes around the country. The practice is the root of the religion, and Shabbat is about surrounding yourself with loved ones and paying homage to the history. “Living by yourself and having a group going to Wendy’s, it gives you a feeling of belonging,” Mahler said.
