Emor: Chapter 26

The counting of the Omer and the festival of Shavuot


Rabbi Shimon says that whoever merits the Torah in this world merits it also in the World to Come. He talks about the sacrifice of the Omer and also of barley meal; the latter is a meal offering of jealousy, from "This is the Torah of jealousies," a warning for women not to go to men other than their husbands.
