Counting the Omer

Sunday April 12, 2020 is יוֹם הֲנָפַת הָעֹמֶר Yom Hanafat Ha'omer (Day of the Waving of the Sheaf). When the Temple stood this day marked the official commencement of the grain harvest (Deuteronomy 16:7) and sheaves of barley were cut and brought to the Temple as a wave-offering (Leviticus 23:9-14). This day also marks the beginning of the 50-day count to חַג הַשָּׁבֻעוֹת Shavuot (Pentecost; Feast of Weeks). Yom Hanafat Ha'omer is counted as Day 1 and Shavuot as Day 50.

There are different methods of counting the 50 days. According to some the commandment 'and you shall count for yourselves fifty days' means to simply observe the 50th day as Shavuot while others actually declare out loud the number on each of the fifty days. A medieval Karaite Jewish practice combines two different methods of declaring the daily count. The first method is the counting of seven weeks. Each day, the number of the week and the number of the day in the week are declared. So for example, the first day is 'first day of the first week'. The second counting method used is an overall number for each day. In this method Day one is 'the first day' and Day 25 is 'the twenty-fifth day'. These two methods are used to satisfy the commandment to count seven weeks (Deuteronomy 16:9) as well as the commandment to count fifty days (Leviticus 23:16). Below is a list of the counting for each day.

    Shalom! I am from Honduras and I’m trying to understand how to do this count according to Scriptures and I don’t have anyone to guide me, so I would appreciate if you could explain to me how Lev 23:14 meets with the Count of Omer, especially in the part when says: “… until the selfsame day…”

    In vers 11, it says the sheaf should be waved on the morrow after the sabbath, and verses 12-13 explain the offers in the same day. But in verse 14 states that until that precise day we shouldn’t be eating bread (and other things) and I would think this also has to do with the commandment to be able to eat only matzá, but the feast of unleavened bread lasts until 4 days after that. So, I’m wondering the “why” of those words: “… until the selfsame day…” if you are not supposed to be eating any bread even beyond that period, and for me this is important because everything has to fit in order to understand and do the count correctly. Thanks in advance.

      I asked the same question this year. I was told that it meant you could only eat of the grain from the past year until first fruits, than on the day of first fruits you eat of the new grain. You still don’t eat bread, just the new grain. That is the only answer I got. But I got it from a very good source as far as I believe. I am still having a hard time with how many start the counting of the Omer from the 16th of Nisan. Even Jews who are Yeshua centered. It doesn’t line up with the resurrection. I have always believed the morrow after the sabbath would make it the Sunday or the 17th of Nisan

      • GabriHela says:

        Thanks for your answer… It is still confusing huh? they seem to be interpretations or maybe according to traditions. With respect to the start of the counting of the Omer, I did have a hard time, but with the Scriptures and the information provided by some people involved with Nehemia, yes, you are right, the morrow after the sabbath would make it the Sunday but to me that would be the 18th of Nisan (or Aviv), because remember that the days are counted starting the sunset, so for this year Pesaj (14th Aviv) starts on tuesday 7th until wednesday 8th sunset, then the Unleavened Bread Feast would start immediately after that (on 15th Aviv – between wednesday and thursday), so, if you keep counting until the morrow after the sabbath (between saturday and sunday), that would make it 18th of Aviv/Nisan… I believe… 🙂

        Thank you… tried to, but it’s been difficult to find out exactly what I’m looking for, the way the info displayed in her sites it’s a little confusing for me (I’m not a native English speaker)

    Nehemiah, would you be so kind as to set up a calendar or just list the holidays, because I get it all mixed up with the rabbinic dates.
