Rabbi Yael on Air: Counting the Omer on the Radio

On Thursday, April 13, 2017, (the third day of the Omer 5777), Rabbi Yael Levy joined the "Chai Haven show" on New Haven Independent Radio to speak about the 49-day ritual.

She describes the renewed popularity of the daily Jewish practice and how it can bring new meaning to our lives.

The Omer teachings you will see here and can receive as nightly email reminders by signing up for our mailing list, are taken from Rabbi Yael Levy's Omer guide, Journey through the Wilderness, which is available as a whole in print or as an ebook.

The daily teachings will begin Saturday April 20, 2019, and continue to Shavuot, June 8. Also this year, for the first time, A Way In is offering the opportunity to count together one night a week on Zoom, guided live on video by Rabbi Yael Levy. Every Monday evening Rabbi Yael will offer a teaching about the week and the day of the Omer, and we will stand together and count the new day. Counting together strengthens and helps inspire our experience and practice. Go to instructions for connecting with Zoom.

The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured in a 2015 New York Times article.
