BAburning_5057_normal_sizeThe Sukkat Shalom, or tent of peace, is a Jewish “camp” that has been organized the past few years at Burning Man, this year held Aug. 27 to Sept. 3 in the desert

outside Black Rock, Nev. Originally created by a group from Brown University and Moishe House, the Sukkat Shalom camp in 2012 once again had a strong Bay Area presence, including Ron Feldman (top left), who helped lead Kabbalat Shabbat services Aug. 31. Sam Berrin Shonkoff and Eric Wehlitz were among the other Bay Area leaders of this year’s camp, at which more than 300 Burners enjoyed a Shabbat dinner. “A lot of people found the services very meaningful,” Feldman said. “They liked that there was a Jewish aspect of Burning Man they could hook into.” photos/michael fox
