Parsha Emor - Sefirat HaOmer
The commandment to count the Omer comes from the verse: "You shall count for yourselves, from the morrow of the Sabbath from the day you bring the Omer as a wave offering seven weeks; they shall be complete" (Leviticus 23:15). The term "Sabbath" in this context refers to the first day of the holiday of Passover and not the weekly Sabbath. However, in some years, when Passover begins on Sabbath, the weeks of the Omer do coincide with the seven-day week. Is there an aspect of extra "completeness" that occurs in such years? (Based on Likkutei Sichos vol. 12 p. 16 and vol. 22 p. 143)

Letters and Numbers of Torah - Emor
“The L‑rd said to Moses: Speak to the Kohanim, the sons of Aaron, and say to them . . .” (Leviticus 21:1) What is the difference between “speak to them” and “say to them”? In Hebrew these two words are “emor” and “amarta”—the first is spelled aleph-mem-reish, while the other is spelled aleph-mem-reish-tav, the only difference being the letter tav. This additional letter symbolizes the difference between a theoretical lesson and a hands-on educational experience.

The underlying principles of the mitzvah of Sefirat HaOmer
This presentation pioneers a novel approach to understanding the underlying principles of the biblical commandment to “Count the Omer.” Following the initial point of departure; demonstrating the need to frame the “counting” as a continuation and natural extension of the original Omer Offering itself – the thesis moves to develop a new look at “Sefirah Secrets” by examining the “Wave” ritual that seems to occupy a position of oversized importance.

Shabbos is the first on the list of special days on the Jewish calendar. Yet, the secret to understanding these special days lies in the fact that the Torah reminds us to work for six days before listing the holy days.
