Educational Resources for Lag Ba'Omer

Hi Everyone!

The Jewish festival "Lag Ba'Omer" is Sunday, May 18, 2014.
If you are flying over Israel on Sunday night 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.

BTW - Usually the bonfires are the night before but the
Chief Rabbinate decided to move celebrations to Sunday night
to avoid desecration of the Shabbath.
The Ministry of Education delayed the Lag B'Omer school
holiday in anticipation of students staying up late at the bonfires.

I posted on my website 43 links to learn about "Lag Ba'Omer".

Enjoy the bonfires!
