4th Annual Rabbi Louis Neimand Lecture with Professor Noah Kaye

Hellenism under Judaism: Rabbinic and Judaeo-Greek Traditions on Translation of Torah
Sunday, April 26th 4:00 PM
FREE; Donations gratefully accepted

As legend has it, 70 Jewish sages once gathered in Alexandria to translate the Hebrew Bible into Greek. The result was the so-called Septuagint(a) or LXX, the translation of the 70, which was the everyday Torah text read by Greek-speaking Jews for centuries in Antiquity. Early Christians knew the Hebrew Bible via the LXX, and it left an indelible imprint on the new religion. More information here.


Counting of the Omer (Hebrew: ספירת העומר, Sefirat HaOmer, sometimes abbreviated as Sefira or the Omer) is an important verbal counting of each of the forty-nine days between the Jewish holidays of Passover and Shavuot as stated in the Hebrew Bible: Leviticus 23:15-16.

This mitzvah ("commandment") derives from the Torah commandment to count forty-nine days beginning from the day on which the Omer, a sacrifice containing an omer-measure of barley, was offered in the Temple in Jerusalem, up until the day before an offering of wheat was brought to the Temple on Shavuot. The Counting of the Omer begins on the second day of Passover (the 16th of Nisan) and ends the day before the holiday of Shavuot, the 'fiftieth day.


Mitzvah Day, is Sunday, May 17th. Jointly sponsored with by Jewish Federation of Lane County and Temple Beth Israel Sisterhood. Kick-off Breakfast at 8:45 a.m. in the TBI Social Hall after which volunteers will join their groups. More information and sign up here.
