Count the Omer
invites you to count the Omer with
The Omer Project, as they gather to count the Omer on
different street corners in the Sunset and Richmond districts of San
There are 49 numbered avenues in those neighborhoods,
in perfect correspondence to the 49 days of counting the Omer.
(Was G-d on the City Planning Commission, or what?)
As if that’s not cool enough, the Torah has been symbolically compared
to the ocean,
and Torah scholars have been compared to the fish in the sea.
They count their way through the avenues. They join together to learn a
new spiritual quality each week.
They gather in community and at synagogues in the Sunset and Richmond
They count the Omer at the numbered avenue that corresponds with the
particular Omer day.
Rain or shine... We all Count! (Bring an umbrella if you need it.)
The Omer Project is all about bringing people together and emphasizing
the message that we all count.
