Welcome to the Peeling a Pomegranate Guide to Counting the Omer. I created this free workbook to help people explore the practice. We begin counting the Omer on the second night of Passover. If you do a second seder, it starts that night. Remember that Jewish days begin at sundown.
I hope if you engage in the practice this year, you’ll share your experiences with me and the community by posting comments!
If you want to follow the traditional approach to Counting the Omer, RitualWell.org has a great outline.
