Counting of the Omer Study Program Series

Wednesdays at Noon (Eastern)

From April 12th – May 24

Register Now!

Join us as we mark the journey our people made from slavery in Egypt to becoming the free people who stood together at Mount Sinai by counting the 50 days of Omer. During the Omer we draw inspiration from our people’s transformation, by reflecting on our own journeys of freedom and growth. Our reflection is traditionally fostered by the study of sacred texts. This year, our team of Rabbis of small congregations brings you seven sessions on Nevi’im and Ketuvim, the “Prophets” and “Writings” sections of the TaNaKh. Join us for one or more of the sessions as we delve into our textual tradition during this period of reflection. Wednesdays at noon Eastern, Once you have registered, you may attend any or all of these weekly study programs, according to your interest.
