    Does anyone here have the custom of distributing salt packets on the first night of the Omer?

    Omer,

    The Nitei Gavriel on Pesach (volume 3, 29:9) discusses the custom in some Sephardic communities to hold salt in one’s hand while making the bracha of Sefiras Haomer.

    Phil, this is discussed in many works but didn’t know it was brought down in the NG. Thanks for info.

    Does this have anything to do with Lot’s wife who turned into salt on pesach?
