Rabbi Yitzchak Breitowitz – Double Feature 1

The Period of the Omer and Love Your Neighbor as Yourself – Rabbi Breitowitz shares how the current Omer counting period has both a positive and negative perspective. The positive is the joyous period between leaving slavery (Pesach) and receiving the Torah (Shavuot). The negative is 24,000 students of the great sage, Rabbi Akiva, dies during this period of time – which makes the Omer a time of mourning. The ultimate goal of this mourning is to rectify the character trait of not giving kavod to others (“love your neighbor as yourself”). Watch the video to get filled in on all the details in between.

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!
