Don’t miss Professor David Kraemer TODAY at 6:00 p.m. ET as he teaches our last Day of Learning session: “Counting to 50: The Omer, the Jubilee, and the Magic of Jewish Numbers.”
Fifty, or 7 X 7 + 1, is a little recognized magic Jewish number, present not only in the counting of the Omer but also in the Jubilee cycle. Indeed, there is an ancient Jewish book, the Book of Jubilees, that is devoted to charting the creation and development of the world according to the Jubilee cycles. What is the magic of these cycles, and why does Jewish tradition understand the world to acquire its freedom only with the arrival of the fiftieth?
Don’t miss this final session! #linkinbio
