Counting the Omer

Omer,הָעוֹמֶר, is a Hebrew word which means a measure of the offering of barley grain, a small portion of which was burned on the altar of the Temple in Jerusalem at the beginning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. As the Temple does not currently exist, the offering has been suspended. However, each year, Messianic believers and Rabbinic Jews count the 49 days of the Omer from the first day of the Festival to the 50th day – Shavu’ot, also known as Pentecost. Below are the 49 days of HaOmer, the counting of the omer.
