Educational Resources for Lag Ba'Omer

Hi Everyone!

The Jewish festival "Lag Ba'Omer" is Sunday, May 14, 2017. To avoid Shabbat desecration, bonfires will be on Sunday
night May 14 instead of Saturday night. Israeli school vacation for Lag Ba’omer has been postponed by one day, from Sunday, May 14 to Monday, May 15. If you are flying over Israel on Sunday night (May 14) 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.

I posted on my website 40 links to learn about "Lag Ba'Omer".

I also created English Hebrew vocabulary sheets at:

Enjoy the bonfires!

I am currently updating the links for Yom Yerushalayim,
Jerusalem Day, which is celebrated this year on May 24, 2017.
