Matisyahu hosting Shabbat Tent in Wakarusa


Join MATISYAHU, Birthright NEXT, and Rabbi Yonah, for a rocking Shabbat organized by Adam & Michelle Weinberg and Team Shabbat Tent at Wakarusa Music Festival, June 4-7, 2009.

That’s right, yours truly will be on-hand for facilitation of Shabbat stuff, like dinner and services, and who knows what else.

MATISYAHU performs on Friday late-afternoon at the festival, and will be joining festival-goers for Shabbat from Sundown on Friday night June 5 until nightfall on Saturday, June 6

Organized by the the now famous, often immitated but never duplicated Shabbat Tent Team, and sponsored by the brave souls who run Birthright Israel NEXT, Matisyahu and friends will be setting up prayer services, meals, and parties throughout the weekend.

No knowledge of Shabbat is required, and all activities are open to everyone who wants to attend.

Campers are also free to stop by the Shabbat Tent at anytime throughout the festival simply to hang out, fire up a conversation, or mingle with new friends and old. More details on the Shabbat festivities will be forthcoming soon and available here and at Matisyahu’s official website.
