Lag B’Omer around the world

Lag B’Omer around the world

Lag Ba’omer is a minor holiday that occurs on the 33rd day of the Omer, the 49-day period between Passover and Shavuot. A break from the semi-mourning of the Omer, key aspects of Lag Ba’omer include holding Jewish weddings (it’s the one day during the Omer when Jewish law permits them), lighting bonfires and getting haircuts.

All over the Jewish world, these Lag B’Omer celebrations and bonfires are held. Here are some of them, at our communities around the world.
