The Count

Today is 12 days, which is 1 week and 5 days of the Omer

Today’s Learning

Pirkei Avot 6:6 tells us: Greater is learning Torah than the priesthood and than royalty, for royalty is acquired by thirty stages, and the priesthood by twenty-four, but the Torah by forty-eight things.

The 12th way is: By fine argumentation with disciples

From our community:

Two of the websites I go back to again and again are Keshet (, specifically their Resources and Events page, and RitualWell ( Keshet is specifically LGBTQIA+ focused, and the resources are on how to make Jewish ritual and practice more inclusive of queer community. Ritualwell is often useful for that purpose, but it is helpful in terms of reimagining all types of ritual or creating new traditions for times when you might be in need of them.
