Omer Learning

In Pirkei Avot 6:6, our rabbis teach that Torah is acquired in 48 different ways. During this year’s 49 day Counting of the Omer, we’ll be sharing these 48 behaviors. Along with these words of wisdom, we want to share our own community’s ideas for how one can more deeply connect with Torah and all things Jewish.
