It has been a few months since I have posted anything to the blog. I was distracted as I was recovering from knee surgery and had to learn how to walk again. That being said I am now back in Jerusalem, walking around and back to exploring the streets. I would like to share with you my most recent experience.
Last night was the start of Lag B’Omer, a holiday that reveals the mystical traditions within Judaism. One of the main ways in which Lag B’Omer is celebrated is by having massive bonfires in the street. The fire represents the light of the Zohar (Kabala) that was revealed in the world.
I wondered the streets of Jerusalem mostly spending time in the neighborhood Mea Shearim. Mea Shearim is an Ultra Orthodox religious neighborhood, known for being more secluded from the secular world.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the images and getting a glimpse of what the Jewish holiday Lag B’Omer is like in Jerusalem. I would love to hear from you, so leave a comment and let me know what you think!
