Let's put our cell phones away while in Shul.

During this trying period let’s make a heartfelt pledge – a real, genuine pledge. A pledge that we will really try to keep.

At the place where we have that daily connection to Hakadosh Baruch Hu.

Can you fathom what a kiddush Hashem it would create?
Can you contemplate how many zechusim will accrue for each and every one of us?

So let’s do this – together.

Put. It. Away.

In shul? No phone.

Because the only connection you and I need….is with G-d.

Put. It. Away.

It’s the greatest connection we will ever experience in our entire lives. It’s our connection with Hakadosh Baruch Hu. If we understood that special connection, we’d never have a worry or concern.

The opportunity to daven to the One who controls every facet of our lives is so unbelievable, so powerful, so transformative, that we should, in truth, spend time each day davening in gratitude for being able to daven.

It’s an unparalleled zechus. So let’s make a heartfelt pledge together:
