In our tradition, the holiday of Passover is connected to the holiday of Shavuot, through a process of counting the 50 days between the two. There is both an agricultural connection, with Passover marking the very beginning of harvest season, and Shavuot marking the bigger harvest of wheat and other crops, as well as a spiritual connection. On Passover, the Israelites begin their journey out of slavery in Egypt, and on Shavuot we commemorate the receiving of the Torah and the realization that their new life of freedom will be guided by Torah’s teachings. Lag B’omer is the 33rd day of this 50 day journey, and we’ll celebrate with music around a bonfire (bring your instruments!), storytelling, and enjoying each other’s company under the stars.
