In ancient times between Passover and Shavuot, daily measurements of barley called Omer were brought to the Temple in Jerusalem. Jews still count these 49 days of offering. This is called Sefirat HaOmer—Counting the Omer.
The Omer Project Meditation Card Deck is a set of 49 illustrated counting cards with texts to inspire introspection and meditation along a personal, spiritual journey through the 7 weeks of Sefirat HaOmer. A card containing the blessing recited before each day of the count is also included.
The Omer Project Meditation Card Deck is inspired by a combination of Mussar teachings and Kabbalistic tradition. Each week, represented by one of the seven lower sefirot of the Tree of Life, is assigned a primary symbol image as well as a daily secondary gesture indicating the action within another’s week. The final week, Malchut, is a little special—its emphasis is on the gesture, and the symbol itself is secondary.
Each day we count the Omer, we contemplate how the sefirot interact with each other, manifest in ourselves, and the ways we address our relationships and the world around us.
