"The world was created with fifty Gates of Understanding."
- Talmud, RH 21b
Join The Omer Project as we open the first forty-nine gates of understanding during the seven-week period of Sefirat HaOmer (Hebrew for "Counting of the Omer").
This year we will NOT gather on the streets of the Sunset and Richmond districts in San Francisco.
The amazing artwork used by The Omer Project comes, with generous permission, from Rabbi Me'irah of San Francisco. You can purchase her beautiful art at versesilluminated.com, or contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
