Lag Baomer

 

The 33rd day of the Omer count is a festivel day on the Jewish calendar-Lag Baomer. We celebrate the holiday outdoors: The children traditionally play with bow and arrows and bonfires. Many visit the resting place of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (in Miron in Northern Israel.) who lived in the 2nd century of the Common Era, was the first to publicly teach the mystical dimension of the Torah known as the "Kabbalah,"

On the day of his passing, Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai instructed his disciples to mark the date as "the day of my joy". So each Lag BaOmer we celebrate Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai's 's life.

Tu B'Shevat

Tu B'Shevat the " New Year of Trees" on the 15th of Shevat on the Jewish calendar, This is the season in which earliest-blooming trees in the Land of Israel begin a new fruit-bearing cycle.

Legally, the "New Year for Trees" relates to the various tithes that must be separated from produce grown in the Holy Land. These tithes differ from year to year in the seven-year Shemittah cycle; the point at which a budding fruit is considered to belong to the next year of the cycle is the 15th of Shevat.

On Tu B'Shevat we eat fruits, particularly from the "Seven Kinds" that are singled out by the Torah in its praise of the bounty of the Holy Land: wheat, barley, grapes, figs, pomegranates, olives and dates.

Jewish Holidays Calendar

Central to the life style of the Jewish community is the Jewish calendar which marks important traditional events throughout the year.

Judaism is based on a lunar calendar which predates the standard Gregorian calendar by more the 3,700 years.

Months are marked by the appearance of the moon rather than using a fixed number of months each year.

The Jewish week begins on Sunday ending Saturday, the Sabbath and the Jewish day begins at sundown rather than midnight. The Sabbath lasts from sundown Friday until sundown Saturday.
