    National Day of Unplugging

    Citing the unrest sparked by a hateful video in the Middle East and the seeming difficulty of achieving interreligious respect and understanding in much of today’s world, Santa Clara University is holding a series of a dozen lectures exploring the public significance of sacred texts from diverse contexts and faith traditions with a series of speakers with backgrounds from Hindu to Jewish and Muslim and more.

    The latest event is being held Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and includes a discussion of the upcoming fourth National Day of Unplugging March 1 and2, an observance of an annual day of rest that is rooted in the Jewish Sabbath.

    The National Day of Unplugging is a project of Reboot, a national nonprofit that seeks to reinvent and reinvigorate Jewish traditions to make them resonate with a new generation. It is funded by the Koret Foundation. The NDU is in its fourth year and encourages people to take a regular pause from technology to reconnect with the community and those around them.
