Counting the Omer: The Lighter Side

For Lag b’omer custom teaches us to lighten up the Omer intensity a bit with picnics, bonfires and celebration.  Enjoy!

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 shloshah ushiloshim yom, shehem arbah-ah shavuot vachamishah yamim la-omer.

Today is 33 days which are 4 weeks and 5 days of the Omer.
