COUNTING THE OMER
Counting the Omer is the commandment to count 50 days (seven Sabbaths plus one day) between the offering of the first fruits of the barley harvest (First Fruits) until the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost) Leviticus 23:15-21.
Scripture was written to a people living in an agricultural society with a functioning Tabernacle or Temple. Today, most of us do not live this life. The Temple has not been rebuilt. Of course we could just forget this command or seek to pursue it in the best way we can. We prefer the later. The lists scripture readings for each day leading up to Shavuot.
