Counting the Omer — Day 9: Discernment/Strength (גבורה) within Discernment/Strength (גבורה)

"Every morning, traditional Jews don t’fillin (phylacteries; small boxes containing verses from the Bible). One box is placed on the head; the other bound to the upper arm with long leather straps. After the appropriate blessings are recited, the t’fillin are left on throughout the weekday morning prayer service. Wearing t’fillin represents the energy of G’vurah she b’G’vurah. T’fillin binds the wearer in a strong connection, constraining distractions and directing thoughts toward God. T’fillin are external reminders of our inner choices of restraint" (Counting the Omer: A Kabbalistic Meditation Guide, p.75). For other days of the Omer, please click here
