National Day of Unplugging


Join me in a National Day of Unplugging, brought to you by Sabbath Manifesto. This is a noble, important effort at encouraging us to unplug from technology, and turn, instead, back to our families, friends, and selves. It starts tonight at sundown, and ends tomorrow night at sundown.

There are TEN PRINCIPLES to follow:

  1. Avoid Technology
  2. Connect with Loved Ones
  3. Nurture Your Health
  4. Get Outside
  5. Avoid Commerce
  6. Light Candles
  7. Drink Wine
  8. Eat Bread
  9. Find Silence
  10. Give Back
Won't you join me?

Shabbat Shalom!!

Tweet the Exodus!!!

Happy Rosh Chodesh Nisan!!

In honor of the beginning the Hebrew month in which we celebrate the wonderful holiday of Pesach, something AMAZING is happening on Twitter. For the first time ever, a group of rabbis and educators from all over the country (including moi!) will be tweeting the story of the Israelites' Exodus from Egypt.

This will be a huge multimedia experience, and I strongly encourage you to check it out.

To join in the fun, please visit TweettheExodus on Twitter!!
