Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz – In this podcast, Rabbi Tatz focuses on how counting the Omer helps build us up piece by piece, step by step towards the destination. Always an interesting question of why we don’t count “Day 50” when the Torah itself says count fifty days – listen in for the answer.

KLM Making the Omer Count

Rabbi Asher Baruch Wegbreit – Shares great insight on how to recite the Omer with intention, meaning, and purpose this year.

Personal Thoughts – I counted tonight with Rabbi Wegbreit’s video in mind and it felt less robotic and more meaningful (even though I probably missed all the bases the Rabbi covered but I’ll keep at it). Try it yourself!
