Shabbat Tent at Lockn’ in 2019

Shabbat Tent returned to Lockn’ Festival with partners Jam Shalom for a third year in a row.

Shabbat Tent partnered with Jam Shalom to bring a hospitality tent to the famous jam band, Dead loving festival in Virginia again in 2019. The effort, led by volunteers from Jam Shalom and Shabbat Tent, had to rebuild after torrential rains and wind leveled their first encampment.

The inclement weather did not deter them from rebuilding and serving Shabbat meals, providing a place to chill, and enjoy community and celebration during Lockn’.

Shabbat Tent and our parent organization JConnect, are very grateful to the organizers of Lockn’ Festival and Jam Shalom for accommodating our band of merry festival goers and our pop-up Shabbat hospitality again this year.

Shabbat Tent is a program of JConnect and open to people of all backgrounds to help enjoy festivals, celebration and community.
