Day 41 - Yesod Sh’b Yesod: Foundation within Foundation

In integrity, I am supported.

In alignment, I stand before all that is hidden.

Blessed are the secrets of eternity.

(Psalm 41:13-14)


Here we stand, with reverence and awe

Our roots firmly planted within the Mystery.


Practice for today:

Take time to be aware of the earth on which you walk.

Feel the ground under your feet.

Make contact with someone you haven’t spoken with for a while.

Offer a prayer for the healing and well-being of the natural world.


May my prayers be rooted

May they rise like incense

May the offerings of my hands be received as a gift.

(Psalm 141:2)


-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.

Please feel free to join us via call-in for Thursday morning 8-8:30 AM Omer-themed Meditation Sits with Rabbi Yael Levy, or listen to a recording of the Sit posted on Facebook and our Web site soon afterward.

The daily teachings started on Tuesday, April 11 and continue to Shavuot, May 29. The practice as well as Rabbi Yael were featured recently on the Chai Haven Show on New Haven Independent radio, as well as in a 2015 New York Times article.

Each week of the Omer is associated with one of seven sefirot, manifestations of Divine attributes, that the Kabbalists associated with each week between Pesach and Shavuot.

As part of your Omer practice, please consider making a donation in conjunction with a week of the Omer (and its attribute) that resonates for you. If you wish to make a gift in honor or in memory of someone, we will let them know of your gift with an inspirational card.
