Counting the Omer: Today’s Gratitude for Our Teachers

“Find yourself a teacher and acquire for yourself a friend,” Pirke Avot teaches.  This article about child care and early education rather than “day care” is an interesting reminder about the learning and care our Buerger Early Learning Center teachers bring our children every day.  Today, we were thrilled to honor our Buerger Early Learning Center pre-K teacher Suzy Curcio, winner of the Howard and Terri Abrams Teacher Recognition Award!  Thank you, Suzy, for being a teacher to us all!  We devote this 38th day of the Omer to all of our ELC teachers for the guidance and care your bring to all our children.

Baruch Ata Adonai, Elohenu Melech ha-olam asher kidishanu b’mitzvotav vitzivanu al s’firat ha’omer. Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the universe, who makes us holy with sacred actions and enjoins us to count the omer.

Hayom shmonah ushiloshim yom, shehem chamishah shavuot ushloshash yamim la-omer.

Today is 38 days which is 5 weeks and 3 days of the Omer.
