Counting the Omer

“You shall count from the eve of the second day of Pesach, when an omer of grain is to be brought as an offering, seven complete weeks. The day after the seventh week of your counting will make fifty days, and you shall present a new meal offering to God." Leviticus 23:15-16

The Omer is a link between Passover and Shavuot, from the time when we were liberated to the time when we became an autonomous community. Counting up to Shavuot reminds us of how we grew from having a slave mentality to having a freer, self-determining outlook.

Counting the Omer begins on the second night of Passover, when it is part of the Second Seder.

After the first day of the Omer we will count the Omer as part of Ma’ariv services.

Yizkor

“May God Remember."

Yizkor means “may [God] remember,” from the Hebrew root zachor.

The eighth day of Passover is one of the four days throughout the year on which the Yitzkor service is recited at our synagogue.

During the Yizkor service, mourners will silently recall their deceased, the congregation will pray for all Jewish martyrs, and the lights on all the memorial tablets will be turned on.
