Lag B'Omer

Lag B'Omer is one of the holiest and mystical days in the Jewish calendar. What is it all about? 

Sefiras HaOmer and the Lag B’Omer Bonfire

Join Rabbi Siddur around the bonfire as he takes us on a journey to Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai’s grave in Meron and to Rabbi Akiva’s grave in Teverya. Learn about why we light bonfires on Lag B’Omer and what’s so special about these great leaders. Discover why Sefiras HaOmer is a time of mourning and why there’s a holiday on the thirty-third day.

The Light of the Torah


Bonfires symbolize the light of the Torah, and just as every aspect of Torah must be performed safely, it’s extremely important to practice fire safety around the bonfire. Rabbi Siddur has some good advice about staying safe during and after the Lag B’Omer bonfire.

Come join our adventure and connect to the holiday of Lag B’Omer!
