The Kabbalists explain that the 49 days that connect Passover with Shavuot correspond to the 49 drives and traits of the human heart. Each day saw the refinement of one of these sefirot, bringing the people of Israel one step closer to their election as G‑d’s chosen people and their receiving of His communication to humanity.
Each year, we retrace this inner journey with our “Counting of the Omer.” Beginning on the second night of Passover, we count the days and weeks: “Today is one day to the Omer”; “Today is two days to the Omer”; “Today is seven days, which are one week to the Omer”; and so on, till “Today is forty-nine days, which are seven weeks to the Omer.” Shavuot, the “Festival of Weeks,” is the product of this count, driven by the miracles and revelations of the Exodus but achieved by a methodical, 49-step process of self-refinement within the human soul.

Are you in shape for backpacking? If you exercise regularly, you may be ready for short trips and easy terrain right now. But the backcountry can be rough and the more prepared the better off we'll be.
Tips to get you started.
The best way to train for backpacking is… backpacking. For us in yeshiva that might not be as easy as it sounds, but filling you backpack up with books and charging up and downs the stars ( in good footwear)
Start slow and light gradually increase the length and your backpack load.
If you have a bike, start pedaling. Cycling is another good way to condition your legs and increase endurance.
Tip: Remember to stretch before and after all activities.
Your efforts will be amply rewarded with a happier, more relaxed time out on the trail.
