Mitziut's work as embodied in Rabbi Menachem Cohen transcends geographical boundaries. I first met Menachem in 2003 at Burning Man which is held annually in the Northern Nevada desert. This festival involves some 40,000 people gathered to share in performance art and various spiritual modalities. Rabbi Cohen has had an enormous impact on the Jewish element of this festival. He has fed the spiritual lives of those attending through leading of services and special classes and personal encounters. His brand of Judaism makes classical traditions come alive to people who have often left their participation in communal Jewish life. For me personally my annual trek to Burning Man and encounter with Mitziut's Rabbi energizes my participation in "normal" Jewish Temple life for the rest of the year!
