Omer Learning: Day 30

The Count

Tonight we count the following day of the Omer:

Today is 30 days, which is 4 weeks and 2 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 30th way is: Who loves [his fellow] creatures

From our community:

Rabbi Yael Levy’s DIRECTING THE HEART – Weekly Mindfulness Teachings and Practices from the Torah is fabulous.


“Directing the Heart: Weekly Mindfulness Teachings and Practices from the Torah” contains meditations and suggestions for Mindfulness practice inspired by the first five books of the Bible. For each week of the year, Rabbi Yael Levy searches out teachings from the Torah for guidance on how to love in the face of loss, to be open to joy, gratitude and beauty and to live with disappointments, sadness and pain.
