Tonight we count the following day of 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 9th way is: By joy
From our community:
I’ve enjoyed learning about Jewish communities around the world and the latest events in Israel, reading the Torah column for that week’s portion, and hearing about various Jewish-themed human interest stories (e.g., people discovering their family’s Holocaust history, Jews in sports, and more). My other favorite thing about the paper is the Jewish-themed crossword puzzle, which I am relatively good at given my specialized trivia knowledge base. All in all, I would say that local Jewish newspapers are a great, often-overlooked resource for learning.
