Lag Ba’Omer is a mystical holiday connected to the counting of the Omer, a Kabbalist practice which marks the 49 days between Passover and Shavuot. This period invites us to explore the building blocks of life, like lovingkindness, strength, and harmony, and reflect on how they manifest in our own worlds. It is a time to gather our wider communities together as we recount our ancestors moving out of bondage and learning to live as a free, interconnected people.
Cosponsored by Ma’ayan Spiritual Arts, Neranenah, and Congregations Bet Haverim, Shearith Israel, and Ahavath Achim.
