Is there a place in Jewish law for observing 'Half Shabbat'?
When I was a teen, you were either religious or you weren’t. Today’s rabbis would do well to broaden their view of religious observance, so more people could feel part of the Jewish community.
I am told there is a growing phenomenon called observing “Half Shabbat.” This, apparently, is when a person keeps Shabbat as a whole, but does send text messages on their cell phone and/or use a computer for social networking. I would like to offer a number of thoughts regarding this development.
