Some Jews count the Omer. I sometimes do, but I am also counting weeks of self-isolation.
We have just concluded 49 days of counting, which began April 9 and ended May 28 (between the second night of Passover and the Shavuot holiday).
I could say, “Where does the time go?” But time does seem to pass a bit more slowly these days.
Our regular routines are disrupted. If we normally employ a cleaning person, that person isn’t coming. Book clubs may meet via Zoom or may not meet at all.
Still, technology has allowed our congregation to remain active. We hold weekly services, engage in Torah study with our student rabbi and hold virtual board meetings.
