22nd Day of the Omer

7 Iyar
22nd Day of the Omer

We count seven weeks of the Omer. Let us dedicate this week to hope. We know the path toward beauty is rough. Every day a decision, every moment an opportunity to be better, to be brighter, one thousand choices a day. And we shall hope…

Anticipating, believing, affirming, thinking abundantly, even when our self-confidence is not strong. Hope takes practice. When the human spirit aspires, we stretch. When we reach beyond what enslaves us, we live with light and goodness. When hope becomes the answer to fear, so much is possible. Imagine the possibilities when we envision ourselves as strong, healthy, loving. Miracles abound.

Rabbi Karyn D. Kedar, from Omer: A Counting

 

 

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-second day – three weeks and one day of the Omer.
