Sefiras Ha'Omer - The Counting of the Omer - Perek 120
On the second night of Pesach we start to count the Omer. We count while standing. The commandment is to count immediately at its (the night) beginning after the first appearance of the stars. If necessary it can be done all the night. In synagogue on Shabbat and Yom Tov evenings we count after Kiddush in order to bring in early the holy day. At the conclusion of Shabbat or Yom Tov we count before Havdala in order to delay the going out of the (holy) day. When the last day of Yom Tov falls on a Sunday, when we say Kiddush and Havdala on the same cup (of wine), we also count first, in order to delay the Havdala. (KSA 120:1)
