What is Lag B’omer??

Lag B’Omer (the 33rd day of the Omer Count between Passover and Shavuot) celebrates the end of a plague amongst the students of the great 2nd century sage Rabbi Akiva, and also the passing of his disciple, Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, who was the first to publicly teach the "Kabbalah," and authored the Zohar. On the day of his passing, he instructed his disciples to mark the date as "the day of my joy." On this day the mourning practices of the Omer period are suspended, and it is celebrated with outings, bonfires, and other joyous events.
