Title

The Paper Chase: A Comical Story of One Man’s Race to Beat the Clock

Description

In 2009, on a weekend that saw wind chills fall below zero, 800 Jewish people were attending a conference at a resort in the Catskills when the heat went out. Among the many challenges that arose was the need to procure disposable plates and cutlery to feed those cold people — all within the two hours left before sunset. What followed was a frenzied race that proved to be a great story filled with twists and turns, suspense, and a lot of laughs. This story, which also includes a slide show and info about the Jewish laws governing the Sabbath and keeping kosher, was a hit at this year’s AG.
