Omer Learning: Day 20

The Count

Tonight we count the following day of the Omer:

Today is 20 days, which is 2 weeks and 6 days of the Omer

See: The blessings and procedure for counting 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 20th way is: By a minimum of preoccupation with worldly matters

From our community:

I love the Take 10 For Talmud Podcast ( In about 10 minutes, you get to hear the details of one new page from the Talmud a day.

The episodes are unfiltered in the sense that the whole of the Talmud is on display, including much minutia and anachronistic content. But I think that’s a feature, not a bug. If you’re looking for “just the good stuff,” this is the wrong podcast for you. But if you want to see the impressive scope of our Rabbis, then this is a winner.
