Omer Chants by Rabbi Shefa Gold

Below are eight chants by Rabbi Shefa Gold along with links to Shefa’s website so that you can hear Shefa offering these chants directly. The matching of the chants to each sefirah, as well as the selection of a chant that can be used each day of the Omer Period, was done by Chantleader Atzilah Ellen Solot and Yael Raff Peskin. 

On any given day during the Omer Period, three of these chants are offered:  Ivru/Breakthrough Chant,  Chant of the Week and Chant of the Day.

They can all be chanted together in the evening (or morning) when the Omer is counted, and/or throughout the day … bringing awareness back–again and again–to the qualities of the day, infusing each moment with an embodied experience of the Omer journey. 

THROUGHOUT THE OMER PERIOD – “IVRU, IVRU”

Go through, go through the gates, clear the way of the people!  (Isaiah 62:10)
