Thousands of people are making their way to Meron on Friday in advance of Lag B’Omer, which will begin on Saturday night. The holiday marks the passing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai (Rashbi), who is buried in Meron.
Last year an estimated 500,000 people celebrated the day in Meron. Arutz Sheva’s Hebrew-language news service will have live coverage of this year’s events beginning at 10 p.m. Saturday.
Israel’s first-response group, Magen David Adom (MDA) is at the scene and will be on high alert until Monday night, with one central station and two clinics operating in Meron for the next three days.
