National Day of Unplugging

Last week I posted about the Sabbath Manifesto, an initiative of Reboot, which has launched a campaign for a National Day of Unlpugging. The campaign encourages Jews across America on this COMING SHABBAT, March 4-5, 2011 (from sundown to sundown) to take one Shabbat to simply focus on 10 things:

  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
I encourage us all to join thousands of other Jews to take the Sabbath Manifesto challenge – and spend a Shabbat focusing on 10 simple points that can better ourselves, our families, and our world.



About Rabbi Joshua

I'm a Rabbi, writer, thinker, mountain biker, father and husband ... not necessarily in that order. According to my wife, however, I'm just a big nerd. I have degrees in dead languages and ancient stuff. I have studied in various Jewish institutions, including an Orthodox yeshiva in Europe. I get in trouble for making friends with perfect strangers, and for standing on chairs to sing during Shabbos dinner. In addition to being the Senior Rabbi of Beth Emunah Messianic Synagogue in Agoura Hills, CA, I write regularly for several publications and speak widely in congregations and conferences. My wife is a Southern-fried Jewish Beltway bandit and a smokin' hot human rights attorney... and please don’t take offense if I dump Tabasco sauce on your cooking.
