Permission to Unplug

This August, Everyone Has Permission to Unplug

Whether you are traveling the world, headed to the beach, or getting ready for a relaxing evening at home, Shabbat is here for you every Friday night. The magic of Shabbat is that you can celebrate it anywhere and in any way that you want. It is as portable and unique as it is relaxing and revitalizing.

We’ve teamed up with Let it Ripple to offer Permission to Unplug, a four-week series to help you consider what a tech-free Shabbat could look like. Take our short quiz each week in August to find ideas, tools, tips, and resources to host an unplugged Shabbat this summer.

And as an added bonus, each Friday evening a new video will be presented by Rebecca Schisler, a core faculty member of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, to get everyone ready to unplug with intention. (These videos will be available on both the OneTable and IJS Instagram accounts.)  

Offline, we’ll also offer several in-person events in select cities. These events are open to registered OneTable users, so login or create an account to see what’s available near you.

As if all of that weren’t enough, we’ll also have resources from At the Well to help you make the most of Elul, the Hebrew month leading up to the High Holidays which begins this August. 

Are you ready? Unplug and go play! 

OneTable empowers people who don’t yet have a consistent Shabbat dinner practice to build one that feels authentic, sustainable, and valuable. The OneTable community is funded to support people (21-39ish), not in undergraduate studies, and without an existing weekly Shabbat practice, looking to find and share this powerful experience.
