Hallei Psalms

WAVING theBikkurim (First fruits)

The day after the Pesach Seder is called Waving Day,

it is the first day of Counting the Omer (tithe).

On that day a lamb is waved, with challah made from the first omer of barley - the first grain crop to ripen.

Today is the fiftieth day of Counting the Omer.

On this day the first omers of wheat - the last grain crop to ripen - are baked into Matzah Lechem and >

brought to wave before YHWH.

Each loaf is made with an omer of fine wheat flour, about a half-gallon.
Each is about three feet long and nine inches wide.

    Leader: Did you start counting the weeks after sundown at the end of Pesach High Sabbath?
    Congregation: Yes.
    Leader: Is this the day after seven complete Shabbatot?
    Congregation: Yes.
    Leader: You have reached the fiftieth day of counting the omer?
    Congregation: Yes, Yom Ha Shavu'ot is fully come;

we may wave the omers.

To the singing of Hallel Tehillim 113,

the Challah loaves are waved from

	So praise ye the Lord. 
	Praise ye the Lord.

	to the going down of the same, 
	the name of the Lord shall be praised.
