Lag B'Omer Right After Shabbat

The kids in the area have been very busy collecting wood and preparing their bonfire. Lag B'Omer is coming right after Shabbos. Great excitement .... However, with all excitement comes the need to exercise a little control. Please make sure you wait for Shabbos to finish completely before lighting your bon fire.

Shabbos comes out in Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) at 19h57. For Shabbat times elsewhere in the world, you can take a look at

If you have children, please take good care of them. Keep them a safe distance from the fire. Make sure not to throw any plastic or other items in that can blow out of the fire in the direction of anyone passing by. I hope your bonfire is a safe distance from any grass, trees or other foliage.

 Enjoy Lag B'Omer, if you can, send us a pic of your bon fire and we can all enjoy together.

Remember, Lag B'Omer is about the great light that Rebbi Shimon Bar Yochai revealed, so take a few moments or half hour or more to study some Torah. If you can manage to learn a story of teaching from either the Zohar or Chassidus, so much the better.

 Shabbat Shalom
