Lag BaOmer

LAG BAOMER by Tal Paz Fridman

Today’s story behind the picture belongs to a photo taken by our photographer Tal Paz Fridman in Israel: The Jewish holiday of Lag baOmer has many customs. The most well-known, however, is the lighting of bonfires throughout Israel, especially by children and families.

Lag BaOmer (Hebrew: ל״ג בעומר‎) is celebrated on the 33rd day of the so-called Counting of the Omer. It marks the day on which Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai revealed the deepest secrets of Kabbalah in the form of the Zohar (Book of Splendor), a landmark text of Jewish mysticism.
