Every1Counts: Days 7 and 8 (a double portion because it will soon be Shabbat)

TODAY IS SEVEN DAYS, WHICH IS ONE WEEK, OF THE OMER


Being Jewish for me is about blessings—not only for milestones but during each and every day. We are blessed to connect to those we love, and to people we have yet to befriend. We are blessed to find identity and purpose and to be able to rally resources to meet challenges. We are blessed to learn.   We are certainly blessed to be part of a rich tradition and to be able to expand upon that tradition to make it meaningful.

I recognize the blessings of celebration: the seasonal cycle of holidays and the weekly joy of Shabbat. And I marvel at raising our family in a community that feels like family: Temple Beth Abraham, a huge blessing in our lives.

*We are posting this response today, so you do not have to use your computer/phone on Shabbat.


It’s hard to put into words exactly what being Jewish means to me. It’s a feeling I can’t quite describe. I will say it means being part of a family and community. It means carrying on traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation. It means friendship and love. It means holidays – and food. It means being able to share with my children something that is so special and important to me. And it makes me proud.
