ספירת העומר


Chazan Pierre Pinchik (1900 – 1971), from Zhivitov, Kiev (Ukraine), who was cantor in Leningrad (Petrograd) from 1923 to 1926, where he also sang compositions by Lewandowski and in 1927 managed to escape to the US.

ספירת העומר – Omer-Zählung, d.h. die 50 Tage zwischen Pessach und Schawu’ot. Den selben Abstand haben im Christentum auch “Ostern” und “Pfingsten”(von Πεντηκοστή pentekoste = griechisch “fünfzigst”, verwurschtelt zu penkst und dann eben pfingst).
