Lag b'Omer

Last night began Lag b'Omer, the Jewish holiday that mourns Jewish suffering and persecution under the Romans thousands of years ago. On the holiday Jews are supposed to light fires, and so it was amazing driving back at night from the Golan Heights to Be'er Sheva seeing all of the giant bonfires Israelis made all over the country. It looked as if the entire country was on fire, which was an amazing thing to see.
