Turning DON’Ts into DOs! Harnessing the Power of (Halachic) Habit

Type: Programs
Topics: Cornerstone

Shabbat is often associated with ingrained behaviors, most of them “don’t”s. Don’t turn on lights, Don’t use your phone. Can we harness the power of habit and traditional imperative to create our own, personal, Shabbat “yes”es? We’ll explore the nature and science of habits, as well as the deeper goals inside some of the traditional Shabbat “don’t”s. Together, we’ll find some personal, positive habits we want to experiment with (privately) to enhance our sense of Shabbat and see if we can make a “yes” as reflexive as a “no.”
