Shabbat from Texting

I like this ad.
At Rosh Hashanah services I noticed that the faces of a few congregants were glowing.  At first I thought it was because they were transformed by the prayer experience.  Praying together is indeed an inspiring experience!  Then I realized that their faces were reflecting the glow of their Blackberries, or was it their iPhones.  Our attachment to our mobile devices is all consuming.  We would do well to heed the Offlining campaign and leave our mobile devices at home on these holiest of days.  Check out for more information.  Let us use these days to look into the faces of our family and friends instead!
