Loved the “Heat Wave” teaching, we just hand one here in California too. Is it possible the gap is 40 days instead of 50 after Shavuot? A 40 day count lands right on Yom Kippur. Which allows about 3 days of harvest before the start of Sukkot instead of landing 26 days after Sukkot. Just wondering. Sundown May 31 – Sundown September 28, 2020 120 days.
