We Count with the Omer Project!

The Yeashore Community is very proud to participate in The Omer Project. We hope you will join us, since We all Count. The website is:
Join The Omer Project, as they gather to count the Omer on different street corners in the Sunset and Richmond districts of San Francisco.
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.
They count their way through the avenues. They join together to learn a new spiritual quality each week. They gather in community and at synagogues in the Sunset and Richmond districts. They count the Omer at the numbered avenue that corresponds with the particular Omer day.
Rain or shine... We all Count! (Bring an umbrella if needed)
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 at 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 an I-Count card for you to count the Omer on your own, between our gatherings.
...Be Seeing You...Raja...
