The seven-week (49-day) period between Passover and Shavuot is called the Omer. The practice of counting these 49 days in anticipation for Shavuot is called the Counting of the Omer. On the 50th day, Shavuot—which commemorates the Giving of the Torah at Mt. Sinai—is celebrated. The Counting of the Omer not only builds anticipation for the holiday of Shavuot, but it is also a time of spiritual refinement and personalgrowth.
Below are daily Omer reflections for each of the 49 days of the counting. These reflections contain thoughts and exercises for personal character refinement and self-growth during this time period.
Yours, O Lord, are the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is Yours; Yours is the kingdom and You are exalted as head above all. (1 Chron. 29:11)
The Scripture used in Omer Week 7 is based off of the JPS 1917 Tanakh.
