I had the opportunity to visit the Rohr Chabad Jewish Center in College Station one Friday evening. The Friday evening services are significant because they mark the beginning of Shabbat, or the Jewish Sabbath. This organization is part of a smaller sect of Judaism known as the Chabad Lubavitch movement. During the service, the congregation refrained from using any and all media resources in observance of Shabbat. The 45-minute service consisted of prayers spoken in Hebrew from the book of Psalms. Although media was absent from the service, I admired the Chabad Lubavitch traditions and culture.

- What forms of media do you see displayed or advertised in the worship building?
- What media forms are used in the worship service?
- How are attendees instructed/encouraged to interact with the media in certain way?
- What seem to be the core beliefs/values of the community emphasized in the service?
- What seems to be the relationship between the community and the larger world/culture and the media?
