Shabbat, Status Anxiety, and Social Media

The Talmud teaches that Shabbat provides a person with an “extra soul” for the twenty-hour period on Friday night until Shabbat ends on Saturday evening. As such, Shabbat is an opportunity to care about ourselves and spend time with the people who care about us not because of a glossy picture we post on Instagram or Facebook, but because of who we are at our core.

Yesterday, Thrive Global, a new media venture of Arianna Huffington, published an article I wrote about Shabbat as a critique of how we use social media. You can read the article by clicking on this link.   Shabbat Shalom!
