Lag b'Omer Story

by Rabbi Josh

In honor of Lag b'Omer, Rabbi Josh tells a story (that he told at our pre-Lag b'Omer gathering) about Rabbi Shimon bar Yohai (aka Rashbi) and his son, Rabbi Elazar.  It includes the origin of why we light bonfires on the holiday of Lag b'Omer, the 33rd day of the Omer period!
