Congregation Agudath Sholom Torah on the Go Are we making progress? We are at the mid point of the counting of the Omer but the critical question is whether we are making the days count. Are we nurturing and nourishing our souls? The studying of Ethics of Our Fathers (Chabad.org) during this period reinforces our mission of personal development. As Peggy Noonan noted in her recent article, (Click here to read), "I think more and more people are worried about the American character-who we are and what kind of adults we are raising. Every story that has broken through the past few weeks has been about who we are as a people. And they are all disturbing." The world and we need Pirkei Avot, Ethics of our Fathers. Take a few moments, this Shabbat to study a selection from Chapter 3 and reflect on the relevant messages. Listen to a class posted below or find your own source of Torah inspiration to harness the gift of the Omer.
