Omer Week 6 - Yesod

omer-week6

by Adam Millson

Week 6 of the Omer (May 25th-May 31st): Yesod

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Yeshua, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” -- Heb 12:1-3

Yesod means foundation but it is understood mystically to indicate bonding. As the penultimate sefirah, Yesod draws together the previous five in order to have them work to their fullest. It is the sefirah on which the other five can be built into a great structure.

In this passage and the preceding chapter, the author of Hebrews lays out the huge crowd of fellow worshipers with whom we share covenants and faith. He lists a great deal of the heroes of the faith in chapter 11 and then concludes with this encouragement. We are to take heart in the examples of the heroes that now surround and encourage our people like spectators in a stadium; our faith should be strengthened by our relationship to those who have come before us. However, these witnesses are not limited to the biblical heroes or even to those who have died. The great cloud includes those who inspire us today; great minds like Rabbi Sacks, our parents, teachers, rabbis, and friends. We are bonded together with them all in the household of our G-d and together we strengthen each other.

Write down a few people who inspire you and why. Your list should include at least one person you know personally and at least one that you don’t. How can you draw strength from this person and the bond you have with them personally and through G-d. Share this list with your partner and see who they listed that you might add to yours.
