The seven-week period between the holiday of Passover (celebrating our liberation from Egypt) and the holiday of Shavuot (celebrating our receiving the Torah at Mt. Sinai) is known as Sefirat HaOmer, the Counting of the Omer. Traditionally, this is a time set aside for personal self-discovery and growth. People often engage in the weekly study of middot (ethical character traits) including compassion, strength, enthusiasm, truth, humility, beauty and equanimity.
This year during the Counting of the Omer, the Jewish Mindfulness Center of St. Louis invites you to participate in our 50-Day Meditation and Middot Challenge. Challenge yourself to meditate for at least 10 minutes every day and engage in at least one new practice a week to actualize these middot in your life.
Sign up below to receive Rabbi Goldstein’s weekly email with a short teaching on the middah of the week and an audio meditation that you can listen to each day to help you on your journey.
