Count the Omer
Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu Melekh ha’Olam asher kid’shanu b’mitzvotav v’tizivanu al sefirat ha’omer.
Blessed are you, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who has sanctified us with your commandments and commanded us to count the omer.

Helping by Hosting
There are many volunteer opportunities to help at B’nai Israel. Three of these are to host the student rabbi for Shabbat dinner, to provide the Oneg after Shabbat service, or to offer transportation support.
Shabbat dinner can be in your home or at a local restaurant. The host is expected to pick up the student’s tab, but other guests you invite will pay their own.
The Oneg need not be elaborate. A challah and other light refreshments (fruit, cookies,etc) will be appreciated.
Transportation support could be loaning a car for the student’s use during visit, driving from and to the airport, etc.
Please visit the Hosting Sign-up page if you can help.
