App Reminds People to Keep Resolutions

A little nagging’s not so bad – if it’s electronic. That’s the idea behind a new email-alert service a group of Crown Heights rabbis devised to prod people to keep their Jewish New Year’s resolutions.

“[It] can nag you once a day. It can nag you weekly, monthly, but it rests on Shabbat,” Rabbi Motti Seligson, 30, said of the Resolution Solution, which he created with a team of tech-savvy rabbis.

More than 1,000 users from Arkansas to Mozambique have signed up on since it hit cyberspace last week, posting New Year’s promises on a public message board that lets them choose how often they want the bossy reminders to hit their inboxes.

Making resolutions is one of the traditions of Rosh Hashanah, or Jewish New Year, which started at sundown Sunday and ends Tuesday night. Rosh Hashanah ushers in the High Holy Days, a 10-day period of repentance that ends with Yom Kippur.
