Counting Up

When the Jews were redeemed from Egypt, they eagerly counted down the days until the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Today as well, we count the days and weeks from Passover as we gear up to receive the Torah anew on Shavuos.

Counting Up
Disc 166, Program 662

Event Date: 18 Iyar 5747 - May 17, 1987

When the Jews were redeemed from Egypt, they eagerly counted down the days until the giving of the Torah at Mount Sinai. Today as well, we count the days and weeks from Passover as we gear up to receive the Torah anew on Shavuos.

In this talk to children at a Lag B’Omer Parade, the Rebbe draws on a number of lessons we can learn from this practice.
