The Omer Project, as they gather to count the Omer on
different street corners in the Sunset and Richmond districts of San
This year they will NOT gather on the
streets of the Sunset and
Richmond districts in San Francisco.
INSTEAD, they will count together at
our homes once a week using the "I Count" card
and teachings will be shared via E-mail.

access the teachings, click here: omerproject.com/schedule/index.html.
There are 49 numbered avenues in those neighborhoods,
in perfect correspondence to the 49 days of counting the Omer.
(Was G-d on the City Planning Commission, or what?)
As if that’s not cool enough, the Torah has been symbolically compared
to the ocean,
and Torah scholars have been compared to the fish in the sea.
The Omer Project is all about bringing people together and emphasizing
the message that we all count.
