Lag BaOmer / ל״ג בעומר
Lag BaOmer (Hebrew: ל״ג בעומר), also Lag B'Omer, is a Jewish holiday celebrated on the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, which occurs on the 18th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar. One reason given for the holiday is as the day of passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Modern Jewish tradition links the holiday to the Bar Kokhba Revolt against the Roman Empire (132-135 CE). In Israel, it is celebrated as a symbol for the fighting Jewish spirit.
Lag BaOmer begins at sundown on Mon, 11 May 2020.
Lag Ba'omer is a minor Jewish holiday that traces back not to antiquity, but to the Middle Ages. Marked on the 18th day of the Jewish month of Iyar, the modern festivities include making a bonfire and roasting potatoes, franks, marshmallows and other fire-friendly foods on the flames. Few may realize it, but what we're celebrating is the cessation of a vicious plague that carried off tens of thousands of yeshiva students more than 1,000 years ago – maybe.

Lag BaOmer is always on the 18th day of the month of Iyar. So what’s up with the name? The word “Lag” is made of of the Hebrew letters lamed (ל) and gimel (ג), which together have the numerical value of 33. “BaOmer” means “of the Omer.”
