Shabbat Tent is… 

an oasis of chill based on Shabbat hospitality, mindfulness, and nourishment for the body and soul. 

a space to connect spiritually and communally without regard to someone’s Jewish background. 

a  welcoming tent open to everyone regardless of religion or nationality.

a realization of the spirit and practice of Abraham and Sarah, founders of the Jewish People.


The Shabbat Tent Story starts in 1999, at the Phish Millennial shows. Conceived as a one-off project, its success prompted organizers to create additional tents in the following years. Under new LA-based leadership (part of JConnect) since 2009, Shabbat Tent increased its budget and reach, organizing volunteer teams, equipment, and funders on both coasts. Shabbat Tent has also appeared at: Bonnaroo, Reggae on the River, Wakarusa, Groovefest, Langerado, Beale Street, Woodstock, Mountain Jam, Peach, Gathering of the Vibes, Fare Thee Well, and Kate Wolf. Recent press coverage includes the LA Times, Billboard, Variety, Consequences of Sound, The Forward, Haaretz, JTA, Jewish Journal, and Desert News.
