Rain Doesn’t Dampen Lag BaOmer Celebrations

A Lag BaOmer bonfire and celebration took place for the 33nd year running on Empire Boulevard, in the backyard of the Horowitz family home. Together, the Horowitz family and Rabbi Nachman Twerskei held their annual ‘Hadlokoh’ of a Bonfire in honor of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.

The tradition began in 1984, after the Rebbe spoke about the importance of such gatherings, aimed at instilling Ruchaniyus and Chayus in the youth.

This year’s celebration was marked with the same liveliness as in the past, despite the torrential rains.
