Parshah Emor

Parshah Emor

Leviticus 21:1-24:23

Torah Portion: Emor
From our Sages on the Parshah
You shall count for yourselves... from the day on which you bring the Omer offering, seven complete weeks they shall be... (Leviticus 23:15)

The word sefirah, "counting", also means "luminance". On each of the 49 days of the Sefirat HaOmer ("Counting of the Omer"), we refine, rarify, and illuminate another of the forty-nine traits of our souls.

(Rabbi DovBer, the Maggid of Mezeritch)
