"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").
We will gather on the streets of the Sunset and Richmond districts in San Francisco to count the Omer, meeting on evenings at the numbered avenue that corresponds with the Omer number of that day.
NOTE: All Hebrew pronunciations on this website are Ashkenazi, reflecting the tradition of Jews from Central and Eastern Europe. Please note that Jews from the four corners of the Earth pronounce Hebrew in their own unique ways. The Omer Project honors the diversity of our global Jewish heritage.
