As we came out of winter into the newness of spring Jewish time called us into a journey of discovery.  The journey began with Passover and the acknowledgment of our narrow places—the habits of mind, body and spirit that kept us bound and unable to move forward into our lives.  Passover implored us to imagine a leap into the unknown—to find the willingness to leave behind what had enslaved us. This journey continued into the counting of the omer.  For 49 days...
