Join Us for a Special Eretz Erev Shavuot Event!
Please join us on Erev Shavuot in celebration of giving thanks for the Torah by the reading of the Ten Commandments and symbolically prepare, for receiving the wisdom of the Torah. We believe that the Torah is given to us to act as a guide for our lives more than 3300 years ago. Shavuot remembers the time that God spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai and gave him the Ten Commandments.
Counting of the Omer
Counting of the Omer (Hebrew: סְפִירַת הָעוֹמֶר, Sefirat HaOmer, sometimes abbreviated as Sefira or the Omer) is an important verbal counting of each of the forty-nine days starting with the Wave Offering of a sheaf of ripe grain with a sacrifice immediately following the commencement (Hebrew: רֵאשִׁית, reishit) of the grain harvest, and the First Fruits festival celebrating the end of the grain harvest, known as Feast of Weeks/Shavuot/Pentecost in Mosaic Law (Hebrew Bible: Deuteronomy 16:9–12, Leviticus 23:10–16); or in the varying current Jewish holidays traditions, the period between the Passover or Feast of Unleavened Bread, and Shavuot. This is the second of the three annual Mosaic Law feast periods.
You can find the daily verbal counting here.
