    so we have this 49 day period, which essentially is 7 weeks, that takes us from pesach to shavuos. 49 days gives us time to work on our middos, one day at a time. each day is a building block, where we grow in our personality, our character, and our spirituality.

    what then, i wonder, is the significance of the ‘weeks’? i know the torah tells us ‘7 weeks you shall count’, but what does the unit of the ‘week’ signify that the holiday at the end of it is called ‘shavuos’- implying we have ended our count of those 7 weeks?

    Because 49 is a stupid name for a holiday.

    Don’t confuse Torah with chasidus. It is called chag shavuos. There is a mitzva to count the weeks also.
