Who will You Spend that Hour With?

Here’s the Day to Disconnect Press Release:
Sunday, October 2 has been declared a Day To Disconnect from technology and to re-connect in-person with family and friends.
Rabbi Zechariah Wallerstein, the founder and director of Ohr Naava, an educational institution in Brooklyn, NY, has launched a worldwide campaign to encourage people to switch off their mobile devices for at least one hour on Sunday, October 2, and to connect with people face-to-face instead.

As part of the campaign, Ohr Naava has created a website,, to enable people to register to disconnect for their hours, and to encourage others to join the campaign. The campaign has already received worldwide attention.

Ohr Naava hopes to accumulate 1 million hours of disconnect-time worldwide – which means a million hours of meaningful reconnection – on October 2, the first Sunday of the Jewish New Year, which is also the Fast of Gedalia.

“Technology”, explained Charlie Harary, spokesman for DaytoDisconnect, “isn’t what disconnects us from our loved ones; it’s the overuse of technology. If, during a regular day we can shut off our technology for an hour, it may change our ‘addiction’ to our phones and computers during the rest of the week and year.”
