This double Torah portion is always read during the 49 days of counting the omer. In this lesson, we take a quick look at all the commandments that command us to count time. We learn something fascinating about the Hebrew letters that frame the blessings in chapter 26, and the letters that frame the curses. We then look into an odd little word that occurs only seven times in the Bible – all in chapter 26. Then we finish by examining a special connection between Jacob and Elijah.
