After a brief review of Shmita, the unique commandment to let the Land of Israel rest for a year, Rabbi Enkin will discuss the current 7-week period known as “Sefira”, mentioned in the Torah portion of Emor (Leviticus 21:2-24:23).
What exactly are we counting for 7 weeks? Is it okay to skip a day or 2? What happens on the 50th day?
Why is it a sad period for the Jewish people and how can we use this time to grow to great spiritual heights?
All of this and much more will be covered in this class.
You’ll also get to “meet” the famous Rabbi Akiva and learn why he is the man of the season!
