Can you unplug?

National day offers unique challenge


If you haven’t heard, the National Day of Unplugging is about to begin. The challenge is set to start at sundown Friday and lasts until sundown Saturday.

The National Day of Unplugging is a 24 hour period – running from sundown to sundown – and starts on the first Friday in March. The project is an outgrowth of The Sabbath Manifesto, an adaption of our ancestors’ ritual of carving out one day per week to unwind, unplug, relax, reflect, get outdoors, and connect with loved ones.

The National Day of Unplugging is a project of Reboot. Reboot affirms the value of religious traditions and creates new ways for people to make them their own. Inspired by Jewish ritual and embracing the arts, humor, food, philosophy, and social justice, Reboot produces creative projects, including events, exhibitions, recordings, books, films, DIY activity toolkits, and apps.

Since its inception, Reboot has 480 network members, 700 community organization partners, and hundreds of thousands of people have looked to Reboot to rekindle connections.
