Lag B’Omer is celebrated on the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer, which occurs on the 18th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar. This day marks the hillula (anniversary of the death) of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, and serves as a break in a mourning period that spans the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot. Lag B’Omer customs include the lighting of bonfires, pilgrimages to the tomb of Bar Yochai in the northern Israeli town of Meron, and various customs at the tomb itself. It has become one of the celebrated holidays in Israel where families enjoy community celebrations with the bonfire symbolic of the light or wisdom of his teachings.
