Counting the Omer 5779/2019 #1

Counting the Omer is keeping the commandment to count 50 days (seven Sabbaths plus one day) between the offering of the first fruits of the barley harvest (often called First Fruits) until the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) (Leviticus 23:15-21). This year The Barking Fox is counting the omer with modern pictures of people named in the Bible.

  2. Shalom Al and Char. Thank you for you post on your blog about your sweetheart, Al. Was so good to read and hear your story. Hope you had a great Pesah and have a good week. Hope to see you again sometime.

    Was looking for info on the area SW shabbat, but evidently did not look at the right place or they are not having anymore. please let me know if they are, though I never know if I can get away.

    1. Hi Connie! It’s good to hear from you. There will be more National Shabbat gatherings, but it will be a while. You haven’t missed anything yet! Thanks for asking.
