Counting the Omer

Today is the 17th day of the Omer.  The numerical value of 17 is tov (good). Tiferet shebe Tiferet.  The  compassion  of compassion.   This middos means harmony and  perfect balance.   Middot means measurement and a character trait.  The goal  is  not to be extreme, but to find balance.

Sefirat HaOmer

We now go from Pesach to Shavuot.  It is like a connected Chol Hamoed.  These  days have the power to grow. These are the 49  days that the Jewish people left  Egypt and went from the 49th level of impurity to the 49th level of purity.  From  the lowest to the highest.

If you focus on the positive, you don't have to be so busy getting focused on the negative.

Parsha Parah
Story of Raize's Grandmother  

Today is  the yahrzeit of Raize's beloved grandmother.  She was an amazing Frum woman who lived with complete emunah. Raize tells the story of her grandmother’s miraculous Holocaust survival. Branded in Auschwitz with the numbers 57240, (which adds up to 18), and filled with dreams of her grandmother davening for her, she survived incredible perils to become Raizes support and loving guide.  May she have an  l'iluy neshama - an elevation of her beautiful soul!
