Sefiras Ha’Omer counting the Omer is a blessing waiting to happen. We start counting from Sunday, April 20th, 2014 and we end at Shauvot! (Sunday, June 8th, 2014) As we obey Abba, we are blessed.
15“You shall count seven FULL weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. 16 You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the Lord. Leviticus 23
Here’s how to count: Every night, at sunset, we say the blessing:
Baruch atah Adonai Elohainu Melech Ha-olam, asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tzi-vanu al sefirat H’Omer.
Blessed are You, Lord our God YHVH, King of the Universe, Who has made us holy with His Commandments, and commanded us to count of the Omer.
Today is the _______ day and _______ Sabbaths of the Omer
