During the second Passover Seder, we recite the blessing for the Counting of the Omer, and do so for the next 48 days. The counting of the Omer every night until Shavuos is prescribed in the Torah: "And ye shall count for yourselves from the morrow after the Day of Rest, from the day of your bringing the sheaf (Omer) of the wave-offering; seven weeks shall there be complete, until the morrow of the seventh week, ye shall count fifty days."

Cost: $7 per adult, $3 per student; healthy food and discussion materials included.
