Acknowledgement: Today is Lag Baomer

May 18, 2014

But no celebration. And no “happy this” and “sameah that,” because it aint actually a holiday. And Rabbi Shimon Ben Yohai is, like the rabbi said yesterday, rolling in his grave over how his memory is disgraced with bonfires (when did that become a jewish thing?) and full-blown idolatry. Read this earlier post where I discuss the corruption that pervades the observances surrounding this day,  check out everything Rabbi Bar Hayim has to say.

The irony is that one trying to keep the spirit of the Torah should celebrate Israeli Independence Day and Jerusalem Day, and ignore Lag Baomer…
