The Omer Project
Saturday 4/29/2017 8:15 p.m.
With Congregations Beth Israel Judea & SF Hillel
19th Ave. and Holloway, SFSU side of the street
Join the Omer Project as we count the Omer! This will be day twenty during our ongoing gatherings. We will count, learn, schmooze and sing.
We will join with Congregation Beth Israel Judea and San Francisco Hillel today!
The Omer Project is all about bringing people together and emphasizing the message that we all count. To show that Congregations Count, we are gathering outside of synagogues throughout the Sunset and Richmond districts. To show that Community Counts, we will join together to learn a new spiritual quality each week. To show that Individuals Count, we will offer a punch card and information sheet for you to count the Omer on your own, between our gatherings.
Rain or shine, we all count! (Bring an umbrella if you need it)
Join The Omer Project as we gather outside on the streets of the Sunset and Richmond districts in San Francisco to count the Omer. There are 49 numbered streets 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.
We will count our way through the Avenues, each week getting closer to the ocean, until the holiday of Shavuot. We will gather outside, in community and with synagogues in the Sunset and Richmond districts. We will count the Omer at the numbered avenue that corresponds with the particular Omer day, working our way from the smaller to the larger numbers as the weeks progress.
