DAWN is Reboot’s all-night culture and arts festival celebrating the Jewish calendar’s best-kept secret – Shavuot. Reboot is producing this year’s “choose-your-own” experiential adventure in partnership with the Jewish Emergent Network and LABA’s Into the Night Tikkun Layle Shavuot. DAWN will provide something for everyone throughout the 12 hours of music, film, comedy, dance, food and teaching across multiple channels. While the world still longs for the opportunity to gather in person, Dawn provides the opportunity to gather apart for a tradition that Reboot began years ago in San Francisco irl and that will live beyond this pandemic.

What We Missed At Sinai
The mystics say that every soul that ever was and would ever be reunited at Sinai. Now, on the brink of reemergence, we find ourselves in the midst of another Cosmic Reunion. So, Reboot & LABA gathered the artists, musicians, writers, chefs and filmmakers of today to highlight what they have seen and shed light on where we are going.
The rabbis of the Jewish Emergent Network imagine their Cosmic Reunion with the characters from the Book of Ruth, the book we read on Shavuot, immersing themselves in those themes: interfaith marriage, caring for the poor, equity, environmentalism, grief and loss, altered states, and more. Ruth Revisited brings together rabbis, spiritual leaders, and special guests in a full night of conversation, song, study, movement, and ecstatic dance.
Sounds and Symbols
The ancient Hebrew on the scrolls is but one revelatory text. Music and movement is the “Torah” for the extraordinary musicians, dancers and artists that Reboot & Laba have united. At 10 PM we will feature “Eight Hours ‘Round Midnight,” an extended meditation by John Schott on Thelonious Monk’s immortal ballad. The piece, unfolding note by note, serves as a “text” for Schott to rabbinically interpret and comment upon.
