Mount Meron – Celebration of Jewish Mysticism and Spirit

The celebration of Lag Ba’Omer in Meron, located in Israel’s Galil region, is believed to be the largest attended annual Jewish celebration in the world.

The mountain of Meron is the highest one in the Galil. It is more then 4,000 feet high. It gets its fame on account of the many great Kabbalists and Talmudic sages buried here.
The large domed building is the burial place of Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai and his son Rabbi Elazar. Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai is famous for being the Author of the ‘Zohar’ in the 2nd century.Hundreds of thousands of people gather at mount Meron to celebrate the Hilulah – the day of the passing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yohai. They sing, dance, light bonfires, feast and study Kabbalah. Many have the custom to give their three year old boys their first haircut at this holy spot.The 33rd day of the counting of the Omer is Lag BaOmer (about a month after Passover). Lag BaOmer is not among the major Jewish holydays, yet it carries much of the significance of the Jewish being. This day ties in Jewish mysticism through the giving of Kabbalah with the spirit of national liberation and freedom, being the reminder for the Bar Kochba’s revolt against the Romans.Historically, Bar Kochba’s rebellion eventually led to the exile of Jews by the Romans, scattering them among all nations and fulfilling the destination being “Or La’Goyeem” (Light to the nations). This occurred shortly after acceptance of Kabbalah was complete and the Jews were “ready”. LagBaomer therefore symbolizes this relation and provides important clues to the meaning of Judaism in the global context. Food for thought…
