Pesach-in-progress report

Don't ask, don't tell . . .
worked beautifully, in this case--we were warmly welcomed to both s'darim/seders, despite me making a grand entrance in a wheelchair topped with two canes for walking.

"Momma's little baby loves gluten-free oat matzah,  . . . "
. . . not to mention quinoa, because they're just about the only sugar-free starches that I can eat during Pesach/Passover.

What's omitted from some haggadot gave me food for thought
When I mentioned to the rabbi leading the second-night seder that only those who'd attended Maariv/Evening Service had recited S'firat HaOmer/the counting of the Omer, he brushed it off as no big deal.  Hmm.  Stay tuned for my next post.

Chag Sameach Shira! I am enjoying your blog - todah rabah. I just went through my 10 Haggadot and they are evenly divided between ones that include the Omer count and ones that don't. No obvious rhyme or reason yet, bug will continue to explore this interesting question.

My guess is that the editors of Haggodot that exclude S'firat HaOmer assume that the men have all davvened Maariv/prayed the Evening Service, which includes S'Firat HaOmer, and that it doesn't matter whether the women count the Omer or not, since they're not required to do so. I just don't appreciate having the decision made for me.

Enjoy the last day(s) of Pesach.
