LAG B’OMER

  • Lag B’Omer is an annual Jewish festival. It is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Iyar (Iyar is a month of 29 days. Iyar usually falls in April–May on the Gregorian calendar). The Lag B’Omer celebrations are associated with bonfires.
  • Recently, more than forty-four people died here due to a stampede (in Meron of Israel). They were gathered at the reputed tomb of Shimon Bar Yochai for Lag B’Omer.
  • Lag B’Omer commemorates two historic events of the Jewish history. They are the death of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (Hewas one of the greatest teachers of Jewish Law and ethics) and also the death anniversary of 24,000 students of Akiva Ben Yosef (Jewish Sage). The students died of plague.
