Counting the Omer: Sad Desk Lunch

Sad desk lunch and social isolation– another angle on our community conversations about the role of food in our lives.  Consider in today’s counting of the Omer: Have you recently connected with someone as you broke bread together?

Baruch Ata Adonai, Elohenu Melech ha-olam asher kidishanu b’mitzvotav vitzivanu al s’firat ha’omer.  Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the universe, who makes us holy with sacred actions and enjoins us to count the omer.

Hayom shivah v’esrim yom, shehem shloshah shavuot v’shishah yamim la-omer. Today is 27 days which are three weeks and 6 days of the Omer.
