Emor: Rabbi Gedalia Meyer's Weekly Torah Study
| Published: May 08, 2023
Rav Gedaliah focuses on the popular holiday of Lag B’Omer, which occurs this coming week on Monday evening – Tuesday. Lag B’Omer is a holiday whose origins are shrouded in mystery, and celebrates the life and passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, to whom the Zohar, Judaism’s most important Kabbalistic work, which explores the mysteries of creation and beyond, is attributed. In short, the tremendous popularity of Lag B’Omer is a living testament to humanity’s fascination with the deep mysteries of life.
