Lag B’Omer

Lag B’Omer

Lag B’Omer is a Jewish holiday celebrated on the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer, this year Sunday, May 18, 2014.

During Lag B’Omer we celebrate the anniversary of the passing of the great sage and mystic Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, author of the “Zohar”.

The most well-known custom of Lag B’Omer is the lighting of bonfires throughout Israel on the evening of Saturday, May 17.

In Meron, the burial place of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and his son, Rabbi Elazar, hundreds of thousands of Jews gather throughout the night and day to celebrate with bonfires, torches, song and feasting.
