Harel Nissani

Remembering this period, Jews today count "the Omer" -- 50 days from the beginning of the passover holiday until they reach the Shavuot holiday, the holiday when Jews commemorate receiving the LAW.


  1. Hi. My name is Jenny. I also have a holiday where we count days. I am Greek Orthodox. For Easter, we count days and we fast for 40 days. We don't give up all food, but I can't eat meat or dairy products during that time. When it is Easter, at midnight we go to church and then we eat dinner when we get home. Have a good summer.

  2. My name is Sam. I am Catholic so I do not celebrate the Jewish holidays, but my best friends is Jewish and he tells me about his religion. It sounds very interesting, especially since my religion is from yours.
    Have a good summer.
