Counting the Omer

We are all deeply aware of the passage of each day as we continue to maintain the limitations of in-person experiences until we can emerge into a healthy world. Judaism’s built-in counting practice at this time of year is called the Omer, marking our spiritual journey of 49 days from Pesach to Shavuot, from the emergence from slavery to a moment of freedom and communal responsibility. We will be marking this counting together, through a combination of real time and offline experiences in order to cultivate mindfulness and elevate meaning to this unique time.
