Lag BaOmer

Lag B'omer - this year, May 14, 2017 - is a festive day on the Jewish calendar, celebrating the anniversary of the passing of the great sage and mystic Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, author of the Zohar. It also commemorates another event. In the weeks between Passover and Shavuot, a plague raged among the disciples of the great sage Rabbi Akiva. On Lag B'omer the dying ceased.
