Omer 26: Grateful for a Seed

Day 26: Hod she’b’Netzach, Gratitude for Endurance

Read, re-read, sit with your feelings.

What different feelings are there?

Who does the poem call to mind?

Whose endurance are you grateful for?

What does the poem say about hard times, hells, seeds, endurance? About pomegranates, metaphorical or real?


These questions take off from the text above. And they also go deeper into the day’s reflections in the book Shechinah, Bring Me Home: Kabbalah and the Omer in Real Life.

There are many ways to explore these questions. You can: Tell a story from your own life. Give an example from a book or a movie. Write a poem. Analyze a concept. Offer a definition. Draw a picture. Sing a song.

New to the Omer? Here’s a guide to the theory and practice.
