49 Days to Stretch My Soul

Understanding Gevurah

The second week of the Omer focuses on discipline and restraint, but Kylie asks: What does that really mean?

April 25, 2022

Kylie is trying to get a better understanding of this week’s attribute, Gevurah, or discipline and restraint. Dassi Zar, co-director of Chabad House Bowery’s young professional’s branch, Kehilas Atid, returns to the show as our guide to understanding each weekly attribute.

The Jewish tradition of counting the Omer, or Sefirat HaOmer, marks the 49 days between the second night of Passover and the start of Shavuot. It’s a time of introspection and an opportunity for spiritual challenge and growth.

In this seven-week series, Kylie Unell, host of How to Fix a Soul in 30 Days, invites you on her daily journey to make meaning out of this age-old tradition. Each week of the Omer corresponds to a different attribute of God. On each episode, airing weekdays, Kylie explores these various attributes by talking, reading, doing, speaking, and reflecting.
