28th Day of the Omer

13 Iyar
28th Day of the Omer

 

HOPE

Creator of darkness and light,
banish my despair,
turn aside my indifference,
soften the callousness of my heart.

Open my eyes
that I may see that
beauty abounds,
and that love abides.

Enlighten my life with
holiness and grace.
As it is written:
Come, let us walk in the light of God. (Isaiah 2:5)

 

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-eighth day – four weeks of the Omer.
