Mitzvah #75 - Count the Omer

There's a Mitzva to count 7 week from the time the Omer sacrifice was brought in the Bet Hamikdash.

The Omer is counted every night, starting from the second night of Pessach - 16 Nissan.

One needs to count both days and week.

The counting should be done standing, and a Bracha is said beforehand.

Applies to males, everywhere, always.

Verse: "Count 7 complete weeks" (Vayikra 23:15)
