Day to Disconnect

DaytoDisconnect is a worldwide movement, spearheaded by Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein of Ohr Naava, which will take place on October 2, 2011. On that day thousands of people will voluntarily unplug their gadgets for some time – an hour, two or even all day. During this time, those who chose to disconnect will take pleasure in cherished relationships with spouses, children, family, self or G-d.

Our goal is accumulate a total of 1 million hours.

Join me on October 2nd in disconnecting to connect with some of the most important people in my life.

You can register and pledge hours (it’s free, of course!) right here:

  4. Thanks for posting this, Hadassah!
    Charlie Harary, who’s the spokesman for DaytoDisconnect, answers your question, Bracha:
    “The goal of the campaign is not to have people disconnect for an entire day. That happens on Shabbos and yuntif. The goal is to disconnect for just a brief period of time during a weekday…If we can shut off our phones, for even one hour, during the busy-ness of a regular day, we can condition ourselves to be in control of our technology and not vice versa.”
