Hundreds of thousands of Israelis make the trek to the Tomb of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai in Meron on Lag B’Omer.

Join Yishai Fleisher and his brother Joshua Fleisher (videographer) as they share their pilgrimage to Meron.

Meron, a northern Israeli village, is the site of the tomb of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, a first-century rabbi.

The Lag B’Omer celebration, marking the passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, was instituted by the great spiritual leader himself on his deathbed. It is marked by torches, song and feasting.

Bonfires are lit across the country to mark the occasion.

Watch and get swept into the fiery mysticism of the ultimate Jewish party!
