Homeschool (ENGLISH) - The Two Shimons in the Cave - The Stories of Lag Ba'Omer

Lag Ba’Omer is a festivity with two sides. The side of the spirit – and the story of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, and the side of the sword – and the story of Shimon bar Kokhba. Both hid in a cave, both were students of Rabbi Akiva, and both made a profound impact on the future of Israel.

About the Event

Why do we light bonfired on Lag Ba'Omer? Why do we use a bow and arrow?

There are answers rooted in agriculture, in the Bar Kokhba Revolt, and in the death of Rabbi Shimon Bar-Yochai. Enter the cave with me as we explore these fascinating stories, which involve the greatest revolt in Jewish History, and a profound change in the way we relate to observing Mitzvot.

Schedule is listed in ISRAELI TIME.

This tour is part of an annual course of virtual tours for homeschool kids, on a wide range of topics.
