Lag B'Omer in Meron

Lag B’Omer is the anniversary of the passing of the renowned Holy Sage Tannah, "The Rashbi”- Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai.

Even under the threat of terrorist missiles flying overhead, Tzidkat Rashbi will bring your Kvitlach and prayers to the holy Tzion. People will make the journey to the northern Gallie town of Miron to pour out their hearts in prayer for the salvation of the Jewish people in Israel and abroad.

In addition to providing for these precious Yidden coming to Miron, Tzidkat Rashbi is sponsoring a huge event in Jerusalem for the many many thousands to celebrate in honor of Reb Shimon bar Yochai!

Tzidakt Rashbi is also promoting and sponsoring special learning programs for Torah study and the study of Rashbi's Holy Zohar on Lag BaOmer and throughout the entire year!

Take part in these wonderful tasks in honor of the Holy Tana, and may the merit of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai be a blessing for you the whole year!


The holy “Rashbi” pledged happiness and joy to all who would contribute to the happiness of the day, asking that there be ​rejoicing around his grave site.

This year under threat of terror and missiles the pilgrimage will be much smaller, but some will come with great sacrifice and pour out their hearts in prayer at the holy grave of Rashbi and in his merit open the gates of heaven may Hashem have mercy on his beloved nation - Am Yisroel!

We will be there for them! Please help us with this holy task!

Typically, hundreds of thousands of men, women and children are make the journey to the resting place of the great sage and mystic Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, the anniversary of whose passing is on this day in Meron, in northern Israel.


On this day, the Children of Israel celebrate the day of the Hilula of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai and the end of judgment of the death of the students of Rabbi Akiva. The 33rd day of the Omer count counting of the "Sacrifice of the Omer" which was sacrificed on the holiday of Shavuot.

Normally, masses of people throng to the small village of Meron, no one wanting to miss the opportunity to benefit from the Z’chut (merits) available at this holy site on this holy day. With the giving of charity and the uttering of heartfelt prayers on this precious spot, they draw on the reserve of holiness and power etched in the stone and vested in the earth surrounding the resting place of Reb Shimon.

Countless stories of personal salvation are heard. So-and-so needed a shidduch for his daughter – and his prayers were answered; another prayed for children – and was granted his request. Yet another Jew needed a speedy recovery for his sick son – and his son recovered; another one who had not been able to provide for his family for many long years and was on the verge of despair – was suddenly asked to serve as the manager of a successful company.
