Today is the twenty-ninth day – four weeks and one day of the Omer

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.

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.
