 Counting Then and Now Pesach Sheni

Learning During the Omer

In counting sefira, the days between Pesach and Shavuot, we learn about the importance of time. Counting the days before Shavuot, the day on which we received the Torah, is a preparation for receiving the Torah, which emphasizes the value of time. Every Jew is obligated to occupy as much time as possible in Torah study, and not waste time that could be used for this purpose.

(Likutei Sichot)

Jewish custom dictates that on Shabbat afternoon from Passover until Shavuot (and in some communities until Rosh Hashana) we study weekly a chapter from Ethics of the Fathers.

The Rebbe often stressed the importance not only of saying the words but actually studying the teachings therein. Many interesting and inspiring books in English are available on Ethics of the Fathers including: In the Paths of Our Fathers adapted from the works of the Rebbe; Ethics from Sinai by Irving M. Bunim; Beyond the Letter of the Law by Yanki Tauber.
