"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.

INSTEAD, we will count together at our homes once a week using the "I Count" card, and teachings will be shared via E-mail. To view the schedule and access the teachings, click here.
