DAWN: An All-Night Cultural Arts Festival Celebrating Shavuot, produced by Reboot in Association with Jewish Emergent Network.
Gathering digitally for 11 hours, viewers will spend the night immersed in the arts, music, comedy, food, film, learning, and conversation – all presented by some of the greatest artists, rabbis.
Three concurrent tracks of programming will reimagine the 10 Commandments for 2020. DAWN will feature the premiere of a new score to Cecil B Demille’s Ten Commandments Pt.1 by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Steven Drozd (Flaming Lips), and Scott Amendola.

Cecil B DeMille’s first attempt at telling the Ten Commandments story was in the Silent era year of 1923. The film is broken up into two stories: the story of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt and a thinly related “present-day” melodrama. Berlin, Drozd, and Amendola are creating a momentous new score for the Exodus tale, musically following Moses out of Egypt and into the Dessert where he receives the Ten Commandments.
DAWN will also feature dozens of other sessions and guests, including Jill Soloway; Carl Reiner; Norman Lear; Gabi Moskowitz; Kasher vs. Kasher (Moshe Kasher and Rabbi David Kasher); Michaela Watkins; John Schott; Tiffany Shlain; The Milk Carton Kids; Zackary Drucker; AJ Jacobs; The rabbis and leaders of the Jewish Emergent Network; Yoga, Meditation, Sound Bath, Cooking Class, Music, DJ Dance Party and much, much more!
