flows into Sefirat Ha'Omer (the counting of the Omer), with the
counting of 49 days from the second day of Passover to the holiday of
Shavuot, the time of harvest. The "Counting of the Omer" is
based on the commandment in the Book of Vayikra (Leviticus 23:15-16)
which states: "And from the day on which you bring the offering…you
shall count off seven weeks. They must be complete." This
commandment led to the practice of the Sefirat Ha'Omer, or the 49
days of the "Counting of the Omer." Lag Ba'Omer is simply
shorthand for the thirty-third day of the Omer, as Hebrew letters
have numeric values, the "lamed" equals 30, and the "gimmel"
three, Lamed Gimmel (L"G) Ba'Omer, literally 33 (days) in
