The Torah’s instructions about Sefirat HaOmer are precise; it must be an intact and perfect endeavour. Straightforwardly; this means each day must be counted from the night prior, thereby including the full range of each segment. An additional idea is introduced: all days must be counted in totality to account for a complete and proper Mitzvah fulfilment. Traced to their earliest sources, disparate schools of thought are presented and elucidated. Reconciliation and extraordinary insight into the counting’s nature spill over into Yiddishkeit, and ultimately life itself!
