The Count

Tonight we count the following day of the Omer:

Today is 48 days, which is 6 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 48th way is: Who is exact in what he has learned

Delicious and insightful, what more could you ask for? If that’s not a recipe for learning, I don’t know what is.

The Jewish Food Society ( is on a mission to “preserve, celebrate, and revitalize Jewish culinary heritage from around the world in order to provide a deeper connection to Jewish life.”

What makes their recipes especially fascinating is that many of them begin with a “family journey”. Consider this recipe for “Almoronia (Baked Chicken and Eggplant).” Its journey includes: Spain; Morocco; Belem, Brazil and finally Montevideo, Uruguay.
