...which are SEVEN WEEKS of the omer!!!!!

Peace out everyone, it's been fun. Next year may we merit to count the omer in a (figurative) rebuilt Jerusalem.

כאשר זכינו לספור אותו
כן נזכה לעשותו

Now get your rest; tomorrow night's a big night:

On the third day, as morning dawned, there was thunder, and lightning, and a dense cloud upon the mountain, and a very loud blast of the horn...
(Exodus 19:15)

...and you know the rest of the story.

It was not with our ancestors that God made this covenant, but with us, the living, every one of us who is here today.

(Deuteronomy 5:3)

We'll receive many commandments, including:

From the day on which you bring the sheaf of waving, the day after the sabbath, you shall count off seven weeks. They must be complete: you must count until the day after the seventh week--fifty days; then you shall bring an offering of new grain to God.

(Leviticus 23:15-16)

And so it continues in this recursive loop, this endlessly rising canon.
