The Jewish festival "Lag Ba'Omer" is Thursday, May 10, 2012. If you are flying over Israel on Wednesday night (May 9) and you look down out of your plane, you will see thousands of bonfires dotting the landscape as far as the eye can see. There are various customs and explanations for these celebrations.

All 33 links have been reviewed / checked this week.
