For Lag B’Omer: Parashah Emo

April 30, 2010

Tomorrow, in anticipation of the holiday of Lag B’Omer (The Counting of the Omer), we read Parashah Emor, portion of insightful contrasts. My images for this parashah are: Omer, Emor & Zohar (left) and Of Stars & Seasons (right). I’ve chosen to focus on The Counting of the Omer, which occurs during the forty-nine days between Passover (commemorating the Exodus from Egypt) and Shavuot (the giving and receiving of the Law on Mt. Sinai). ‘Omer’ is the Hebrew word for ‘sheaf’, an offering of grain brought to the Temple in hopes of a healthy barley harvest. For seven weeks, one omer is set aside and counted each day. This practice commemorates the length of time taken for the Israelites to journey from Egypt to Mt. Sinai.

A longer, more detailed interpretation of these images may be found in Between Heaven & Earth: An Illuminated Torah Commentary (Pomegranate, 2009) on pages 159-161 in my AfterImages section. Your questions and comments are welcome!
