“Oftentimes, challenging and hard times are described as being in a dark place or void of light. Sometimes being in a dark place is where we must be, for true transformation happens in spaces devoid of light. That is where deep introspection occurs, allowing the light to shine in and growth to take place” (Yolanda Savage-Narva, Racial Equity/Diversity/Inclusion Director for the Union for Reform Judaism). On our journey from Pesach’s freedom to Shavuot’s purpose, we count the Omer together:
בָּרוּךְ אַתָּה יְיָ אֱלֹהֵֽינוּ מֶֽלֶךְ הָעוֹלָם, אֲשֶׁר קִדְּשָֽׁנוּ בְּמִצְוֹתָיו, וְצִוָּֽנוּ עַל סְפִירַת הָעֹֽמֶר.
Baruch atah Adonai Eloheinu melech ha-olam asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav vitzivanu al s’firat ha-omer.
Blessed are You, Adonai our God, Ruler of the universe, who sanctifies us with mitzvot, and commands us concerning the counting of the Omer.
Tonight begins the 11th day, which is 1 week and 4 days, of the Omer.
Join us for our counting of the Omer, in person and on social media, throughout the journey from Pesach’s freedom to Shavuot’s purpose. Submit a favorite Jewish text for our daily intention to clergyoffice@rodephshalom.
