Day 18 - Netzach Sh’b Tiferet: Endurance within the Heart
Today is the eighteenth day of the Omer.
God brings me out into the expanse,
God releases me because God desires me.
We are God’s desire.
We are being called forth to live fully,
To stand in strength,
to let our lights shine.
Practice for today:
We ask ourselves,
What do I have to let go of to move forward?
I will act compassionately toward all.
I will remember that my strength comes from the Eternal.
—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 8:30PM 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.
