The Company We Keep - Omer Day 49

by Rabbi Katy Z. Allen

We do not up the mountain alone.
We go together,
as a community.

Who sits beside us?
Who stands beside us?
Who walks with us?

Who holds us?

Beside whom do we sit?
Beside whom do we stand?
With whom do we walk?
Who do we hold?




We do not go up the mountain alone.
We go together,
as a community.

It is the only way to survive
revelation.
It is the only way to receive
revelation.
It is life.

We do not go up the mountain alone.
We go together,
as a community.

Today is Day 49, which is seven weeks of the Omer.
Today is Day 49, which is seven weeks of the journey from bondage to revelation.

Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach.
