Day 43 - Chesed Sh’b Malchut: Love within Divine Presence

Love that flows through us into the world

Today we let our thoughts dwell on the experiences of the heart.


Practice for today:

We ask ourselves:

In what situations do I feel generous and loving?

When do I feel myself closing down and turning away?

Who has loved me well? To whom have I opened my heart?

Send forth Divine light and truth, they will guide me and bring me to the holy mountain, to where the Sacred Presence dwells.

There I will come toward the Mystery in gladness and joy and give thanks.

(Psalm 43:3-4)


- 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.

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.

This year A Way In also offers a onetime Omer class, "Looking toward Sinai," with Rabbi Yael Levy in Philadelphia and via livestream on Tuesday, June 4, 2019, 7-8:30PM EST. The class is free and there is no pre-registration required. Go to Calendar for more information.

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