Featured Holiday

Lag BaOmer ל"ג בעומר is the 33rd day of the Omer (unit of grain measure) which is Iyar 18, and falls on Sunday, May 14, 2017, י"ח באייר, תשע"ז. It commemorates a break in the mourning period for the 24,000 students of Rabbi Akiva who died some by plague and some in the rebellion against the Roman Empire in 120 CE.

The main customs are to play with kids' safe bow and arrow, and to light bonfires in the fields.
