The dinner was held at Stara Zajezdnia, a very large modern venue, which was once a train depot and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Over 430 guests attended - including many JCC members from the Krakow community, and friends from around the world.

In addition to the Shabbat dinner, the Festival opened many new eyes to the exciting renewal of Jewish life in Krakow and especially at the JCC, where 100 Jewish Culture Festival events were held, and over 15,000 visitors came through the JCC's doors over the course of the Festival's 8 days.
