During the seven weeks from Passover to Shavuot, the period from the exodus from Egypt to revelation on Sinai, Jews count the days and the weeks. Doing so, we remember the journey from the depths of slavery to the heights of G-d’s Holy Presence. Here’s a link to my Times of Israel essay on counting the Omer. And here’s prayer to set the intention called “The Season of Counting.”
According to mystical practice, each week has a theme, and each day has a sub-theme, leading us toward revelation. For convenience, here are links to prayers and meditations divided by week, as well as prayers for Shavuot. The entire list follows below.
Lovingkindness, love, benevolence. They’re listed in my suggested order, from day 1 at the top to day 7.
Justice, discipline, severity, restraint, awe. They’re listed from day 8 at the top to day 14.
Beauty, harmony, compassion, truth. They’re listed from day 15 at the top to day 21.
Eternity, endurance, fortitude, ambition. They’re listed from day 22 at the top to day 28.
Humility, splendor. They’re listed from day 29 at the top to day 35.
Foundation, bonding. They’re listed from day 36 to day 42.
Nobility, sovereignty, leadership. They’re listed from day 43 to day 49
