The Omer, the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot, is a time of physical, spiritual and communal growth. During this time, the barley is ripening in the fields, the lessons of liberation from Egypt are unfolding in our hearts and minds, and our community is growing together.

During this 7-week period between April 23rd – June 10th, we invite you to join JVP and participate in our personal and organizational growth. A JVP member will reflect on the spiritual significance of each day of this process and then together we will count the Omer. No background knowledge necessary. Calls will last 20 minutes.

May our practice of counting the Omer help us to grow as individuals and a community to fulfill our collective potential for liberation, healing and awareness.
