When we count the Omer,
we count not only the days
but the weeks. We add up the
days and weeks into a mean-
ingful total. We express,
thereby, the thought that
time counts, that time is to be
so employed that it will result
in a significant and construc-
tive sum.
Time is our most precious
possession, and the Torah
commands us not to "kill"
time but to use it, to live it in-
spiringly and meaningfully.

"that we may acquire a heart
of wisdom?'
The counting of the Omer is
not simply a formal calendar
ritual, nor is it merely a
religious exercist in mathe-
matical progressions. It is
nothing less than a Jewish
philosophy of life. It tells the
Jew that if he is to count as
a person, he must learn how
to count in life. The counting
of the Omer comes to us each -
year as an annual reminder of
the obligation to review the
days of our lives and to
resolve to make each day
count. ❑
