Jew in the City Presents “The Sound of Silence” feat. The Maccabeats

In a world obsessed with devices, it occurred to me that we are living in an age where silence dominates many situations. Silence between couples, silence between families, silence everywhere you turn as people tap, tap, tap on their devices. What an isolating existence.

But what if there was an antidote to silence? What if one day a week, people could put away phones, tablets and computers and actually see each other and communicate and laugh and live?

There is such a day. It is called Shabbos.
