28th Day of the Omer
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
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.
