Ellen Hershkin

Welcome to Hadassah’s first monthly Shabbat column at Thrive Global, a new media platform founded by Arianna Huffington.

Each month a Hadassah leader will write about the broad theme of Shabbat. What does it mean to unplug ourselves on Shabbat?

National President Ellen Hershkin kicks off this column with her own reflections on Shabbat.  And don’t forget to share!
