Powering Down For Shabbat

03/18/2010

Listen carefully this weekend and you may hear the ring-tone sound of BlackBerries, cell phones and other devices being turned off.
 
It’s part of the launch of a National Day of Unplugging that takes place this Shabbat, the project of a group of hip young Jewish artists and creative types who want to revive the concept of the Sabbath as a day of rest, but on their own terms.
 
It’s about “powering down a little, but not turning off all the lights,” they say.
