Give Back.

In theory, a Day of Rest sounds kind of…well, selfish. After all, what's the underlying assumption--that I deserve a rest? But in truth, the Sabbath is a day for all of us to kick up our feet and chill out. And one of the best ways to celebrate Shabbat is to give back, and help others as well.

The Ten Principles

1. Avoid technology.

2. Connect with loved ones.


3. Nurture your health.

4. Get outside.

5. Avoid commerce.

6. Light candles.

7. Drink wine.

8. Eat bread.

9. Find silence.

10. Give back.
