May11

Rabbi Judah Kerbel

A few weeks ago, I wrote regarding Sefirat Ha-Omer and its mourning practices. For the last four weeks or so between Pesach and this point, the mourning practices created extra meaning as we mourn the losses of those who have lost their lives to this plague and are experiencing a more somber mood. Meanwhile, as I write this, we enter Lag Ba-Omer, the day that the plague affecting Rabbi Akiva's students ended.Read more...

QJC Shavuos Reader

05/07/2020 04:59:56 PM

May7

Rabbi Judah Kerbel

Pesach was a point at which we experienced yuntif in a way we had never before. Being asked to stay at home during a time that is supposed to be full of simcha is very challenging. As we have counted the weeks towards Shavuot through Sefirat Ha-Omer, it looks like we will find ourselves in a similar situation where we will be celebrating yuntif from home. While Shavuot is meant to be a time centered around learning Torah together as a community, we sadly will most likely not be able to share that experience together.Read more...
