One Who Unsure Whether or not He Counted the Previous Night

One Who Unsure Whether He Counted the Previous Night

Day: Sunday
Date: April 19, 2015
Parshat: Tazria/Mitzora
Yalkut Yosef: 489

One who is not sure whether or not he counted the Omer the previous night may still count with a beracha the following nights. The reason is because there is a "safek sfeka," an uncertainty within an uncertainty. The first uncertainty is maybe he really did count the night before. The second, as mentioned previously (Tuesday April 14, 2015), is maybe each night is its own mitzvah. Because of these two uncertainties he may continue counting with a beracha.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
