The period of the between Passover and Shavuot is called The Omer. For forty-nine days, or seven weeks, we take on a discipline, an obligation to mindfully enter the day, to be aware of its potential power to matter, to make a difference, to count for something. Awaken your routine with intention, with attention.
Rabbi Kedar will teach seven spiritual principles for the seven weeks of the Omer: decide, discern, choose, hope, imagine, courage, pray. These principles can offer path from enslavement to freedom, darkness to light, constriction to expanse.
