Today is the fifth day of the Omer.

Do not recall what happened before, do not dwell on the past. I am about to do something new; It shall flourish, you will see! I will forge a path through the desert, and rivers shall flow in the wilderness.

Isaiah 43:18–19

 

Baruch Ata Adonai Elo-hei-nu me-lech ha-olam a-sher ke-d-sha-nu b- mitz-vo-tav, v-tzi-va-nu al s-fi-rat ha-omer.

Praised be you Adonai our God who rules the Universe instilling within us the holiness of mitzvot by commanding us to count the Omer. Today is the fifth day of the Omer.
