World’s First Lag Ba’omer Celebration a Success

Lag Ba’omer at the Sydney Yeshiva Centre – Chabad NSW HQ this year was a wonderful experience. Live Music accompanied by the voice of Cantor Yehoshua Niasoff filled the air as the first logs of the bonfire began to catch fire. People came from all around Sydney to participate in this family-themed event, this year’s first Lag Ba’omer celebration in the world.

Music Video: Celebrate

This new song from Jewish music star duo 8th Day, titled ‘Celebrate,’ will have you on your feet dancing and singing joyously along. It was released just in time for Lag Ba’omer, when the custom to refrain from listening to music during Sefirah is put on hold.

Getting Ready for Lag Ba’omer in Every Israeli City and Town

There is a special hum that begins to vibrate throughout the Land of Israel in the days preceding Lag BaOmer. In each big city and small village, in every neighborhood and street, boys can be seen toting wood to gather into piles for the bonfires they will be lighting, while girls get their outfits ready for the big parade.
