DAWN: An All-Night Cultural Arts Festival Celebrating Shavuot

Produced by Reboot in Association with Jewish Emergent Network 

DAWN is Reboot’s all-night interpretation of the magical and mighty holiday of Shavuot. Gathering digitally, we will spend the night immersed in the arts, music, comedy, food, film, learning and conversation – all presented by some of the greatest artists, rabbis and thinkers of our generation. Choosing personal adventures through a digital festival experience, we will unpack the mysteries of the Jewish calendar’s best-kept secret.

Reboot and the Jewish Emergent Network have seen first-hand how the power of imagination can translate and transform Jewish ritual and ideas. Last held in 2010, Reboot has hosted five DAWN festivals in San Francisco – evolving the Shavuot experience through the lens of arts and culture, and engaging thousands in state of the art programming. With DAWN 2020, we are amplifying creative ideas and bringing in wider perspectives to create a one-of-a-kind Shavuot festival experience. DAWN aligns with Reboot’s wider response to COVID-19, as we are hosting a series of public digital programs that showcase and explore new pathways for wandering Jews and the world we live in.

WWith three concurrent tracks of programming reimagining the 10 Commandments for 2020, DAWN will feature dozens of sessions and guests, including: The rabbis and leaders of the Jewish Emergent Network; Jill Soloway; Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Steven Drozd (Flaming Lips) & Scott Amendola; Tiffany Shlain; Carl Reiner and Norman Lear; Gabi Moskowitz; Kasher vs. Kasher; Zackary Drucker; John Schott; AJ Jacobs and many, many more!
