Day 45 - Tiferet Sh’b Malchut: Beauty within Majesty

Everything is a gift from the Divine. Everything that is,

everything that will be. It is all a gift from the Eternal.

Keeping our hearts closed profanes the gift.

Keeping our hearts closed deadens the spirit.

 

Practice for today:

We ask ourselves:

What gifts have I received?

What gifts have I turned away from?

Where do I find meaning?

 

My heart is astir with a good thing.

(Psalm 45:2)

 

And always I will bless all that is.

(Psalm 145:1)

 

- 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 tonight at 8:30PM.

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.
