49 Days of InspirationHey readers,
There's a pretty cool thing I did last year, and this year I'd like to offer it to the readers of OOTOB.
There's a period of time on the Jewish calendar called "sefirat ha-omer." It's the counting of the 49 days from Passover (Pesach) till the holiday of Shavuot, which commemorates the acceptance of the Torah at Sinai. There are 7 major character traits that we are meant to focus on at this time, and each of the seven gets paired with another for each of the 49 days to produce a very fine-tuned trait to focus on.
I used a book by Rabbi Yacov Haber to convey the trait of the day with a particular action point that I sent out on each of the 49 days (usually the night or afternoon before), either via text or email. Last year 75 friends were on the list, and I'd like to offer it to you, my readers. If you wish to receive the message (you can cancel at any time) you may comment below or email me with your preference (text/email) and contact info.
I am at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a wonderful Passover to my Jewish readers!
