Today is First Fruits! Here is the 2012 Omer Count Activity Chart like the one we had last year after Passover. Even if you go by the “sighted moon” calendar, this Omer count should be the same up to Shavuot (Pentecost) in May.

Why Do We Count The Omer?

Leviticus 23:15
And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf (OMER) of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete.

We know that the Disciples of the New Testament counted the OMER because we see them assembled together in Acts 2:2 for the feast of Shavuot (Pentecost). They would have counted 50 days from after the weekly Sabbath when the Messiah was Resurrected just like its commanded in the Old Testament.

Whenever you celebrate Passover this year, this chart should work for you.

Simply print out the tabs on your home computer and use scissors to cut them up and paste them one at a time on the chart. HAVE FUN!

GREAT KIDS ACTIVITY

Starting on March 31st, we will be using this chart in our kitchen to teach our son about counting the Omer. Once per day he can stick one of the included tabs onto the chart. Each day its a lesson for him with scripture as we raise him up the way he should go.

I hope you will find this chart helpful and fun and SHARE it with friends so they can enjoy it too! Please post comments at the bottom as the Omer count comes along.

  • Can you add Hebraic Roots Network to your blog roll? Also what scriptures do you use to teach your son the WAY he should go? I have a daughter who is 7 and I want to teach her something simple to remember. Some of the verses are too adult for her.

  • Thank you so much for this guide! I see you are using the ‘equinox method’ of calendar keeping! That is what we are using as well!

    But when I look at this calendar for counting the omer, I am confused I see Passover preparation day as Nisan 14 (Thu. Apr. 25, 2013) but I see Shabbat on Apr. 30 which is a Tue. not a Sat. The weekly Sabbath is sundown Fri. Apr. 26, 2013 and ends sundown Sat. Apr. 27, 2013. So Firstfruits is Sun. Apr 28, 2013 and day 1 of the omer should be after sundown Sat. Apr. 27, 2013, right?

  • I am just beginning my journey into following the Torah and I am a little embarrassed to admit that I don’t know what these holidays and feasts are that you are talking about. I know what Passover is But everything else like first fruits and omer…….I am lost. Would you please explain or direct me to articles that will.
    Thank you so much
