Horowitz Lag B’Omer Bonfire Hits 36 Years

A Lag Ba’omer bonfire and celebration took place for the 36th year running on Empire Boulevard, in the backyard of the Horowitz family home. There, the Horowitz family and Rabbi Nachman Twerskei have 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.
