Tonight we count the following day of the Omer:
See: The blessings and procedure for counting the Omer.
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 49th way is: And who says a thing in the name of him who said it. Thus you have learned: everyone who says a thing in the name of him who said it brings deliverance into the world as it is said: “And Esther told the king in Mordecai’s name”
Editor’s note: 49th way?! Wait, I thought there were only 48 ways! Apparently, I incorrectly parsed the list of 48 ways, splitting one way into two. Perhaps the 49th way is: proofread your work more carefully!
