What is Sefira Counter?

Sefira counter is a program that installs itself into your startup group and runs whenever you login to your computer. It calculates the current sefira count and displays it on your computer.

What does it cost?

Nothing. It's FREE. All I ask is that you do not modify it in any way AND, if you like it that you send a tax-deductible donation to:

Young Israel of Passaic-Clifton
200 Brook Avenue
Passaic, NJ 07055

How do I get Sefira Counter 3.0?

You can download it by clicking on this link and installing from the downloaded file.

How does it work?

Sefira Counter checks the current date and time to see what the current count is. Based on what your computer tells it, you get a screen like the one you see in Figure 1.

What's new in Version 3.0?

Version 3.0 adds automatic checking for sundown and allows you to set your location so it can calculate when sunset is and adjust the count based on the time. It also adjusts for Daylight Savings Time.

How do I set the defaults for Sefira Counter?

Click on the "Defaults" button on the menu and you will see the screen shown in Figure 2. Note that the Latitude, Longitude and Time Zone are not changeable but you can tell Sefira Counter how long to hold off counting after sundown by changing the value in that field.

What do I do if my location is not in the list?

You can add it by adding the location to the Access Database, SefiraCounter.MDB that is in the directory you installed Sefira Counter.

What do I do if my location's Latitude and Longitude settings are wrong?

Just type over the values in the screen and they will update for you.

What do I do if I have more questions?

Just send me an e-mail at
