A Message from Rabbi Haigh and Peggy Kasden: The Seventh Week of Counting the Omer

As we begin the seventh week of counting the Omer, we integrate all the gifts we have received during the previous six weeks of counting, focusing on the indwelling presence of the divine, integration and wholeness (Malchut/Shechinah). Like the celebration of the wheat harvest, we are preparing the harvest of our hearts and souls.

This year we have not been entirely free since Passover, yet hopefully we have used these intervening days to prepare ourselves for the wonders of revelation that surround us as Shavuot approaches. Rabbi Yael Levy writes, “we are called to open our hands and our hearts and wonder about the gifts we can bring into the world. We ask ourselves how can I best be of service.” My friends, today, our community is entirely virtual and profoundly real, and as always the gifts, the creativity, the attention, care and love that you bring to support our community is paramount. We need you today more than ever, your creativity, your patience, your love, your ideas. Please help us to continue to deepen and strengthen the revelatory nature of our shared sacred community.

Like our growing plants, have seven weeks been enough time for them and us to reach maturity or will more time be needed for them to reach fruition? How does this last week of integration and wholeness apply to you and to your plant? How does the indwelling presence of the divine touch your soul?

Chag Sameach. we look forward to spending Shavuot with you on Friday the 29th of May.

Please bring something growing, all newborns, something flowering to our celebration. Hear Torah, Share in the beauty.
