Passover is fast approaching, which means that Counting the Omer isn't far behind. For the last few years, our shul has been running an online program to help make this Mitzvah both easier and more meaningful. Here's the blurb:
Counting of the Omer can’t get any better than this! 49 bits of Jewish Wisdom in 49 Tweets for the 49 days of Counting the Omer!
Join us in marking the coming of Shavuot with a daily dose of Jewish Wisdom straight to your cell phones and inboxes, and infuse a little bit of Jewish learning between Passover and Shavuot holidays.
Sign up by texting follow omerlearning to the phone number 40404. Prefer to get e-mail instead of messages to your phone? Click here. Or, follow us on Twitter at @omerlearning.
The topic for this year is Psalms, every day we'll be tweeting out a verse from the Psalm that corresponds to the count (day 34, Psalm 34).
Should be fun (and totally painless). And for those who are counting, it should be a helpful reminder.
