One day it was the park, the next the parka...

Using the Israelites' encounter with the Manna from heaven as the paradigm for a phenomenon that represents infinite possibilities, yet is only truly powerful if harnessed properly, Rabbi Jennifer Krause discusses the future of technology in the 21st century. The author writes that while we fill our minds every day with unprecedented knowledge and capabilities due to scientific and technological advancement, we must at the same time begin to determine how to properly harness the power of this new experience. As she authored this piece on Passover, Rabbi Krause concludes by calling on her readers to pause amidst their frenzied stockpiling of the manna they call knowledge and information and ask themselves a question: How will I make this century different from all centuries?
