Lag Baomer B'Meron with Shmili BInyomin
Throughout Sefiras Haomer Jews all over all the world remember the tragedy that befell the Jewish People. The deaths of thousands of students of Rabbi Akiva shook world Jewry to its core and showed the generation the grave error in not giving the respect due to one another. On Lag Baomer the plague stopped and throughout history as a commemoration of this day the Jewish people celebrate. Additionally, this day is the day we celebrate the life of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, one of the greatest sages throughout history who gave us guidance in Torah and continues to teach us through his teachings still today. In Meron, the burial place of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai there is a huge celebration on Lag Baomer with music and dancing for hours on end. Shmili Binyomin takes us into that experience with this new album. Listen to the exciting music and the energetic choirs and you can start to get a taste of the celebration there!
