Wednesday night we enjoyed a wonderful Lag BOmer celebration (photos in the newsletter). Eating, drumming and dancing, celebrating life and our Judaism!

Lag BOmer is the Yahrtzeit of one of the greatest sages and spiritual giants in Jewish history, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Rabbi Shimon, who lived in Israel under Roman occupation around 165 CE, was an extraordinary scholar and primary author of the Zohar, the inner soul, the fire of the Torah.

On the day of his passing he requested that his Yahrtzeit be observed as a time of meaningful and soulful joy and festivity, since the day of a persons death marks the culminating point of all that they achieved in the course of their life on earth.

Since then, Jews all over the world, especially at his resting place in Meron, Israel, celebrate this day with singing, dancing, Torah study and an increase in acts of love and unity - Lighting not just candles, but large bonfires, to ignite our souls and our relationships with one another and to invite us to look deeper into the fiery, spiritual energy that is present in every person, every object and every experience.

Wishing us all a Shabbat of warmth and light, inside and out! Shabbat Shalom!

Lag B’Omer paper quilling at Hebrew School! The students used their imagination to create a beautiful bonfire art piece.

The Lag B’Omer Bonfire reminds each of us of our own unique light and to share that light and warmth with everyone around us!
