50 Days of Mitzvot

Daily Learning & Studying the 613 Commandments of the Torah from Passover to the Festival of Weeks

"And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths. Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה." (Wayy/Lev. 23:15-16)


"Count seven weeks for yourself. Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain." (Deb/Deut. 16:9)


From Pesach to Shavuot (Passover to the Festival of Weeks), we count 50 days. This is the time of Counting the Omer.


These 50 days from Pesach to Shavuot correspond to the time Yisrael spent in the wilderness traveling to Mt. Sinai, from the time they were set free from slavery in Mitsrayim (Egypt) to the giving of the Torah at Sinai. For these 50 days, YAHUAH prepared His people to receive His Torah.


As we observe the time of counting the omer, we too prepare ourselves for receiving the Torah. This year (2021), Elohim revealed to us that we should prepare ourselves by daily reading and studying His mitzvot (commandments).


There are 613 mitzvot in the Torah, so each day until Shavuot we will read and study 12 to 13 commandments. This will prepare us for Shavuot when we receive the Torah anew.


Below the 613 mitzvot are divided up into daily portions. Each day, simply read the list of mitzvot. For added benefit, look up and study the referenced verse.


The verse format is (book : chapter : verse). For example, (3:19:9) is Bemidbar/Numbers chapter 19, verse 9; Bemidbar being the third book of the Torah (Bem/Num. 19:9).
