Such a remarkable thing: texting. I wonder if Alexander Graham Bell would have approved. Come to think of it, what, with the telegraph, one might wonder why texting didn't get an earlier start - but of course that would have involved learning Morse Code... What happens when you try to text the Lord? Social Media is Going To Church!This is a really interesting story! (by Debra Rubin on Jweekly) here's a smidgen:...congregants at a Miami Beach High Holy Days service for young adults will be asked to use their cellphones to send text messages to the rabbi during parts of the Rosh Hashanah evening service this year.
Rabbi Amy Morrison of Reform’s Temple Beth Sholom will lead the free service for The Tribe, a semi-autonomous pluralistic group, at a nearby Florida Jewish Museum. Morrison, iPad in hand, plans to stand before a five-foot screen and ask congregants to respond at various points in the service — texting, for example, whom they would like to forgive, how they would like to be remembered and their own transgressions. She expects more than 250 people to attend.
“They can interact with the rabbi and they’ll drive the content of the service — they’ll see each other’s comments and can react to them,” said Rebecca Needler Dinar, The Tribe’s director. “We don’t call it a service; we call it an experience.”
