Every1Counts: Day 40

TONIGHT IS FORTY DAYS, WHICH IS FIVE WEEKS AND FIVE DAYS, OF THE OMER


To me, being Jewish means:

  • Knowing that I am part of a chain of tradition that goes back generations
  • Knowing that I am not the last link in the chain
  • Feeling comfortable that I can enter a sanctuary anywhere in the world and know what is going on and how to participate
  • Feeling guilty that I do not go more often
  • Being proud to be of Am Yisrael
  • Appreciating foods that everyone loves (brisket, bagels, blintz, babka) and foods that everyone loves to hate (borsht, herring, gefilte fish, chopped liver)
  • Taking to heart that it is my responsibility to help repair the world
  • Being an active member of our community
