Calendar Rhythms & Counting the Omer, Parshat Emor

Calendar Rhythms & Counting the Omer, Parshat Emor

Rabbi Ari Goldberg, the director of Pittsburgh NCSY, examines why for the mitzvah of Sefiras HaOmer, Counting the Omer, we don’t recite Shehechiyanu as we do for so many other annual Mitzvot. For him, like the the rhythms of nature, the traditions of hockey season and the calendar of NCSY events, it’s all about patience and anticipation.
