Thursday, 18th of Iyar/ May 26th @ 5:30pm
Join us for an enjoyable evening barbecue in the Krivisky's backyard @ 82 Forsythia Ln. Jericho, NY 11753 (East Birchwood).
It is traditional to light bonfires on Lag B'Omer eve. These commemorate the immense light that the Rashbi, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, introduced into the world via his mystical teachings found in the Zohar, the central teachings of Kabbalah. This was especially true on the day of his passing, Lag B'Omer, when he revealed to his disciples secrets of the Torah whose profundity and intensity the world had yet to experience. Lighting these fires, or sponsoring them, is considered a great merit.
On Lag B'Omer we come together to celebrate Jewish unity!! Come rejoice with us through food, drink, music and friends.
Sponsorship of the Lag B'Omer BBQ Fire: $360
All are welcome. Bring a friend!!
It is customary to give Tzedakah - 'charity' on Lag B'Omer in multiples of '18'.
(as it falls on 18 of Jewish month of Iyar)
