היום חמשה ועשרים יום שהם שלשה שבועות בארבעה ימים בעמר
Today is twenty-five days--that is three weeks and four days--of the omer
A day of perseverance in a week of perseverance
Today marks the halfway point of the count.
We've made it this far,
but the tedium will now start to set in.
The first year I counted on Facebook,
it was around this time that a friend commented:
"How far are you taking this?"
We don't get a halftime break -
it's in the continuation that practice deepens,
supported by this double perseverance day.
