Parshas Kedoshim - The Weekly WOW! ...Focus!
When we left Egypt, we left with the focus to receive the Torah on Mt. Sinai. This focus was the key to an amazing transformation. The mystics tell us that the Jewish people were on the 49th level of impurity when they left Egypt and only 50 days later, when they received the Torah, they reached the 49th level of purity. Focus is the foundation of all growth. It's the basis of holiness.
Did You Forget to Count?
One who forgot the whole night to count, should count in the day without blessing, and on the following night count with a blessing. If he also forgot (to count) during the day, he should count afterwards all the nights without blessing. If he is not sure if he counted at night or not, even if he did not count the following day, in any event he can count the remaining nights with the blessing. (KSA 120:2)
