24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day A Week

24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day A Week

Thursday, September 26
6:30 – 8:30 pm
Martin Meyer Sanctuary

Join us for this pre-High Holy Day discussion, as Rabbi Mintz interviews Tiffany Shlain, Ken Goldberg and their daughters, about her latest book exploring the value of their decade long practice of unplugging from screens each week for what they call their Technology Shabbat. 

This program is recommended for the entire family. Tweens and teens encouraged to participate. Books will be for sale at the event.  

24/6 book cover

In 24/6, Tiffany Shlain explores how turning off screens one day a week can work wonders on your brain, body, and soul. Internet pioneer and renowned filmmaker Tiffany Shlain takes us on a provocative and entertaining journey through time and technology, introducing a strategy for living in our 24/7 world: turning off all screens for twenty-four hours each week. This practice, which she’s done for nearly a decade with her husband and kids (sixteen and ten), has completely changed their lives, giving them more time, productivity, connection, and presence. She and her family call it “Technology Shabbat.”

Drawn from the ancient ritual of Shabbat, living 24/6 can work for anyone from any background. With humor and wisdom, Shlain shares her story, offers lessons she has learned, and provides a blueprint for how to do it yourself. Along the way, she delves into the neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and history of a weekly day of rest across cultures, making the case for why we need to bring this ritual back.

This interview will include Tiffany, her husband, Professor Ken Goldberg, and their two daughters, Odessa (16) and Blooma (10).  

Honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” Tiffany Shlain is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, and founder of The Webby Awards.  Tiffany’s films and work have received over 80 awards and distinctions including being selected for the Albert Einstein Foundation Genius:100 Visions of the Future. NPR names her UCBerkeley address on it’s list of best commencement speeches and her films have premiered at top festivals including Sundance. Some of her Jewish themed films include: The Tribe, a film about American Jewish identity told through the history of the Barbie doll and The Making of a Mensch. She lectures worldwide on the relationship between technology and humanity. Find out more at tiffanyshlain.com and follow @tiffanyshlain

Praise for 24/6

“Put down your phone and pick up this book. I read it in one day, convinced that 24/6 is timeless and timely wisdom. Tiffany Shlain is a modern-day prophet, brilliant and incredibly funny in equal measure.”- Angela Duckworth, New York Times bestselling author of Grit” 

“In this wise, wonderful work, filmmaker Shlain eloquently argues the merits of taking a break from technology, particularly smartphones, one day a week—a practice she refers to as “Tech Shabbat.” … Bolstered with fascinating and germane facts about neuroscience, philosophy, psychology, and the history of the concept of a day of rest, this excellent cross between instruction and memoir deserves a wide audience.”- Publishers Weekly

“[A] bright debut… A useful and much-needed guide to turning the clock back to a less frazzled pre-internet and -smartphone day.” – KirkusReviews
