It’s the best time to read about Sefirat HaOmer as it is so relevant now.

וּסְפַרְתֶּ֤ם לָכֶם֙ מִמָּֽחֳרַ֣ת הַשַּׁבָּ֔ת... שֶׁ֥בַע שַׁבָּת֖וֹת תְּמִימֹ֥ת (And you shall count for yourselves, from the morrow of the rest day, from the day you bring the Omer as a wave offering, seven complete weeks). Each day, each individual is supposed to count.

This year with the coronavirus, this weird crisis we are facing together, I think Sefirat HaOmer is particularly important. Why?
