From San Francisco, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reports A new campaign is promoting Yom Kippur as a day to disconnect from technology.”
Offlining, Inc. launched a campaign just before Father’s Day in June urging dads to put down their cell phones and other technology to spend time with their families. Now they are urging all Americans, Jewish or not, to do the same on September 18.
The online campaign includes ads, one of which shows Tiger Woods with his hand on his heart and the slogan, “You don’t have to be Jewish to atone for your texts on Yom Kippur.”
Meanwhile, Jews for Jesus has plenty of online resources for you to read up on Yom Kippur, which begins at sundown on September 17, as well as Sukkot (the Feast of Tabernacles), which begins at sundown on September 22 and lasts through September 29.
