Lag BaOmer is the day Jews all over the world celebrate Rabbi Shimon’s life and the revelation of the esoteric soul of Torah. Lag BaOmer is also about loving and respecting each other (ahavat yisrael).
In Or Avner-Green Kindergarten and School, on Lag BaOmer we take the topic of friendship and we learn about sharing, loving and being together. Fire is another topic we discuss with our children at this time as well as the concepts of warm and cold.
On Lag BaOmer day, we hold a BBQ party in the school yard. Children and their parents enjoy playing games together, doing art and craft activities, singing songs and dancing around the bonfire.
