HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL 26, 2013 Celeb00r00ting Lag B'Omer together OCALA--Chabad- Lubavitch Jewish Center of Marion County and The Villag- es is hosting a communitywide celebration, featuring a barbe- cue, music, magic show, pony rides and petting zoo from 1 p.m.-3:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 28atthe ChabadJewish Center, 3500 SW 34th Ave. The event, open to the public, will mark the observance of the Jewish holiday of Lag B'Omer, which is traditionally commemorated by large outdoor celebrations and bonfires, which harbor spiritual significance. Chabad- Lubavitch, the largest Jewish outreach organization in the world, is hosting thousands of similar Lag B'Omer celebra- tions in cities across the globe. The celebrations all share a common theme: Jewish Unity. Lag B'Omer marks the pass- ing nearly 2,000 years ago of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai. He is best known as the author of the Zohar, the fundamental text of the Jewish mystical tradition, the Kabbalah. On the day of his passing, Shimoninstructed his disciples to mark the date as "the day of my joy." The holiday also marks the end of a tragic epidemic, which killed 24,000 students of the great Talmudic sage Rabbi Akiva, who served as Shimon's teacher. On Lag B'Omer the dying ceased. Thus Lag B'Omer also carries the theme of Ahavat Yisrael, the imperative to love and respect one's fellow. Lag B'Omer is literally trans- lated as the 33rd day of the Omer, a period ofsevenweeks between Passover, which commemorates the Jewish people's Exodus from Egypt, and Shavout, which com- memorates thegivingofthe Ten Commandments.
