Lag BaOmer in New Jersey
The annual influx of thousands at the kever of Rav Naftuli Tzvi Halberstam of Bobov zt”l is once again greatly anticipated.
Thousands of Yidden from the tri-state area and beyond prepare for Lag BaOmer, with the words of Rav Naftulche of Bobov whispering softly of miracles and salvation. “Rabi Shimon ben Yochai will be by me Lag BaOmer,” he had said, and that promise is reinforced each year anew as crowds descend upon the sacred site. They come to daven and to thank; to plead and to rejoice. Tears of joy mingle with tears of desperation, one assuaging the pain of the other.
Stories are told, and for each one recounted there are so many that will forever remain unknown. The crowds multiply with each passing year at a rate that can only be termed miraculous… for everything about Lag BaOmer in New Jersey is built on mystery and miracles.
Askanim are meticulously planning every detail to ensure a smooth, secure, and comfortable experience. The ohel will be open and illuminated all night and the following day, with amenities provided around-the-clock.
May our tefillos be accepted on this momentous day, amidst the tefillos of Klal Yisroel.
