Lag BaOmer / ל״ג בעומר
Lag BaOmer (Hebrew: ל״ג בעומר), also Lag B'Omer, is a Jewish holiday celebrated on the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, which occurs on the 18th day of the Hebrew month of Iyar. One reason given for the holiday is as the day of passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Modern Jewish tradition links the holiday to the Bar Kokhba Revolt against the Roman Empire (132-135 CE). In Israel, it is celebrated as a symbol for the fighting Jewish spirit.
Lag BaOmer begins at sundown on Wed, 25 May 2016.

Yom HaShoah Program - May 4, 2016
A very special Yom Hashoah ceremony featuring Saul Dreier, founder of the Holocaust Survivor Band was held in May at Temple Sholom. Using music as a tool of survival, Mr. Dreier will dramatically recount his experiences beginning with his childhood in the Polish ghettos, his struggle to survive in three concentration camps, as well as his life after liberation in Italy as a refuge. Today his renowned band of survivors and children of survivors spreads a message of peace, tolerance and forgiveness through its music.
Cantor Hesh Mayersdorf hosted this remarkable evening with the youth of Temple Sholom participating. A Holocaust Remembrance Candle was available for purchase sponsored by our Men's Club.
