Today is thirty-four days, which is four weeks and six days, of the Omer. Yesod of Hod, Bonding of Splendor.
I had the privilege of meeting over twenty rabbinical students and new rabbis from seminaries across the country. I got a taste of Dr. Erica Brown’s Torah of leadership and Rabbi Sid Schwarz‘s vision of covenental community.
My meditation for this day is to connect all that I learned from these teachers and colleagues into my own vocation.
All of our work is important to help people connect with the deepest part of themselves. May we each find time today to reflect on how we connect bursts of inspiration to our daily lives. May we each hold onto gratitude, meaning, and truth as we complete the mundane tasks of daily living.
