Journey Through the Wilderness: A Mindfulness Approach to the Ancient Jewish Practice of Counting the Omer
In this book, Rabbi Yael Levy gathers wisdom from Psalms and the Jewish mystical tradition into a unique Mindfulness approach to the ancient Jewish practice of Counting the Omer during the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot.
