How to: the blessings and procedure for counting the Omer.

From Our Community:

When I am studying Jewish texts, especially in conversation with fellow students or in chavruta, I have the powerful feeling that I am joining in an age old conversation that God opened up at Sinai and just never really ceased. After all, the voices on the pages I study are multigenerational and full of disagreement. Each new voice brings in new contexts and ways of looking at the world and looking at the words. Now in my own generation, I’ve added my own. And in doing so, I speak back to God.
