It is customary not to recite the B'racha She'he'che'yanu during the days of the Omer count.

We all possess an element of "non-good."

Why, the scapegoat (representing evil, banished to Azazeil) [1] was actually a service in the Beit hamikdash! [2]

A physical created being inevitably has a negative element, but we must banish that evil to a "desolate land."



  1. (Back to text) See Vayikra 16.

    This was part of the Yom Kippur rites. Two goats were chosen by lot, one "for G-d" to be offered on the altar, the other, the scape-goat, to be cast down Azazeil, a rocky mountain in the "desolate land," the wilderness, "bearing their sins."

  2. (Back to text) This sentence (like the ones preceding it and following it) continues the emphasis on the ubiquity of evil in this world, exclaiming that a procedure involving banishment of evil was even part of the sacred service within the holy Jerusalem sanctuary!

Day two of week 2 (9th day of Omer)

Gevurah of gevurah

Examine the discipline factor of discipline. Is my discipline disciplined or is it excessive. Do I have enough discipline in my life and in my interactions? Am I organized? Is my time used efficiently? Why do I have problems with discipline and what can I do to enhance it? Do I take time each day for personal accounting of my schedule and accomplishments? Does my discipline include the following six aspects, without which discipline cannot be effective and healthy?

Exercise for the day: Make a detailed plan for spending your day and at the end of the day see if you've lived up to it.
