Lag B’Omer is coming up in a week on Thursday, May 19. On Lag B’Omer communities across the world, gather to celebrate the life of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, the father of KABBALAH. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai was a famous first-century Tannaic sage, and the author of the famed Zohar, the chief work of the Kabbalah. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai requested that all people inspired by his teachings, come together in unity and celebration on his day of passing.
