Jonathan Sacks – Ways of Counting Time: The Omer Controversy
I hope you and your family are well despite the continuing challenges, both physical and psychological, presented by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. May all those unwell have a speedy and complete refuah sheleima.
As we enter Lag B’Omer, which begins tonight, below is a recording of a shiur I delivered in 2016 to over 500 yeshiva and seminary students at Aish HaTorah’s amazing building overlooking the Kotel in Jerusalem.
The shiur looked at the mitzvah of Sefirat HaOmer and was entitled “Ways of Counting Time: The Omer Controversy”. You can watch the video below and download the accompanying mekorot (source sheet) if you wish here.
Sending you all my blessings and best wishes,
