Day 10 - Tiferet Sh’b Gevurah: Balance within Strength

Today is the tenth day of the Omer.

The strength to yield

The willingness to hold our judgments lightly

The radiance of a generous heart that sees clearly and guides us in valuing what is difficult, what is different


Practice for today:

We ask ourselves,

Where is the beauty in this…?

Listening deeply strengthens our hearts. — (Psalm 10:17 — 24)

Rabbi Yael Levy

The Omer teachings you 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 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 at 8PM EST Rabbi Yael offers a teaching about the week and the day of the Omer, and we 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.
