Sefirat HaOmer

Counting the Omer or Sefirat HaOmer, refers to an important verbal counting of the 49 days between the second night of Passover and the holiday of Shavuot.

This period marks the beginning of the barley harvest when, in ancient times, Jews would bring the first sheaves to the Temple as a means of thanking God for the harvest. The word omer literally means “sheaf” and refers to these early offerings. (Source: My Jewish Learning)
