A monthly message from Reboot's Executive Director, Robin Kramer:
It is Reboot's bar/bat mitzvah year, and fittingly, we've been asking a bunch of questions -- the first, "What is Reboot? What do you know?" I am hearing fascinating responses to this query from a variety of humans in Los Angeles, Washington, DC and San Francisco over the last month. Among them: *Creator of cool stuff with a Jewish twist. *A leadership training and nurturing organization. *A cultural/ counter-cultural movement. *An intensely personal experience *Fascinating; totally get it." The responses are as varied as our projects and the creative energy that go into them.
If you are looking to connect right away, in our Reboot way we invite you to disconnect on the National Day of Unplugging on March 7-8, 2014. This Unpluggery was spawned from Reboot's Sabbath Manifesto! Perhaps you have heard about the National Day of Unplugging from CBS News, TIME Magazine, The Huffington Post and others. Join the thousands of people who pledge to unplug. Take an I UNPLUG TO ____ photo in in Hebrew, Spanish, Yiddish, Polish, Russian and German. Create a National Day of Unplugging inspired event for your community by downloading our DIY toolkit. In the words of one unplugger: “It's really refreshing to do something different...I depend too much on my smartphone…I would highly recommend this to my friends and family”
Thank you again for the many ways you give lift and light to Reboot’s imaginative projects- for your questions, answers, ideas, and for your support.
