If you wish to follow the Counting of the Omer, there are two resources available for you.  The first was written by  Max Amichai Heppner – or second, you may choose the more conservative version written by Rabbi Simon Jacobson.

Thursday, May 28, 2020 – 5 Sivan 5780 – Omer day 49 – Erev Shavuot


This is Erev Shavuot, the Feast of the Harvest (also the Feast of Weeks), at which time we celebrate the first fruits, offer bread, and thus acknowledge the partnership between humans, the earth, and God.

Partnering God means living a vision of holiness, and trusting that your vision is not an illusion but rather God’s vision being lived through you.  It means tapping into a memory divinely ordained and eternal.  It means letting go of the pride connected with doing it yourself, and noticing how God helps.  (Glory, p. 245)

Friday, May 29, 2020 – 6 Sivan 5780 – Omer day 50 – Shavuot I


Shavuot has come to be recognized as the anniversary of God’s giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai; each individual has the opportunity to receive the Torah anew on Shavuot.

When the Israelites were three months gone from Egypt, God asked them to recall the miracles and wonders of their passage.  The Israelites vowed never to forget the covenant with God, a covenant of memory, “to remember God.”  And they knew God’s glory was embedded in each of them as they passed through the light at that moment of freedom.  (Strength, p. 162)

Saturday, May 30, 2020 – 7 Sivan 5780 – Shavuot  II


Sometimes you are forced into silence by circumstances of loss, illness, or other avenues of solitude.  Do not view the silence as confining or constraining; rather, sense it as an opportunity for spiritual development and accessing awareness.  (Intention, p. 50)

Sunday, May 31, 2020 – 8 Sivan 5780

Naso:  Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

The Israelites march by clan, each according to his ancestral house.

As you move forward, you open to more profound ways of serving goodness and ascending nearer to the Infinite Source.  (Success, p. 213)

Monday, June 1, 2020 – 9 Sivan 5780

Naso:  Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

As you journey the roads of your life, do not lose yourself in the oblivion of fragmented pathways and alternate routes of being.  If you choose to stop and pick the scattered refuse thrown from every which way, it will be difficult to maintain focus on the larger purpose and destination of this highway.  Do not forget the original intention with which you journeyed a particular road.  (Success, p. 211)

Tuesday, June 2, 2020 – 10 Sivan 5780

Naso:  Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

The Lord defines further the duties of the priests, and commands a census of all the Levites who serve.

The essence of sacred service dwells in the mind.  When a person’s thoughts are connected to Divine wisdom and nobility, even the simplest actions become holy. – Baal Shem Tov (Glory, p. 249)

Wednesday, June 3, 2020 – 11 Sivan 5780

Naso:  Numbers 4:21 – 7:89

When you acknowledge your special place in God’s love, and in God’s world, you gain greater confidence in yourself.  (Creativity, p. 266)
