A Jewish tent will host a Friday night get-together as part of an “informal but Shomer Shabbat programme”, while there will also be activities on Sunday. Those performing inside the tent – which will be located next to the Hari Krishna tent and near the Glade stage – will include the anarchic GhettoPlotz collective, Clive Selwyn and comedian Katie Burnett.
Tanya Winston, one of the organisers, said: “Glastonbury is the largest and most popular festival in the country, if not the world, and having a space there is a chance to make a real difference to our community. It’s an exciting opportunity to reach thousands of people, many of them young, with a Jewish experience.” As well as creating a Jewish environment for the hundreds of community members attending the event, they will also use the space to teach non Jews about the Jewish community.
