Some Jews observe particular restrictions on the first two and final two days of the holiday (similar to Shabbat regulations). Not using any electronics is part of that kind of observance. For those who observe such restrictions, these days of the holiday become a heightened sacred time, setting the days off from the rest of the holiday week. However, the majority of Jews in the US do not observe those restrictions. Some do go to synagogue on those days for special worship services.
