One Lakewood resident internalized that message, and just days ahead of Pesach the resident tells TLS he took a hammer and smashed his Samsung tablet.
“I wanted to do something for my spiritual growth,” the man told TLS.
“It’s about time!” he said. “It’s a spiritual Pesach cleaning – free from technological servitude!”
Though he isn’t looking to encourage others to follow his cleaning process, he says “perhaps others will be inspired to take a step of their own.”
In fact, his children watched on as he made the bold statement.
“I had my kids participate and I believe it made an impression on them.”
Several years ago, a Lakewood resident dumped his tablet into the lake ahead of Rosh Hashana after he found himself wasting too much time on the gadget.
