Change does not begin with answers. Change begins with questions. And what our teachers told us so many years ago is not exactly true; some questions are better than others. For transformation to occur, it is so important to refine the questions. A good question propels us on journey, a quest that is so significant, that there are many possible answers and those answers continually evolve and improve because what the best teachers taught is absolutely true – the question is more important than any one answer.
Rabbi Karyn Kedar
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 twenty-ninth day – four weeks and one day of the Omer.
