Description
 
What is it about Lag Ba'Omer? What transformed the days of Sefiras Ha'Omer -- the forty-nine days between Pesach and Shavuos -- from happy anticipation to somber mourning? What is the significance of the unusual Omer offering?

In this work, Rabbi ShimonFinkelman brings his breadth and skills to the ArtScroll Holiday Series, as he presents the rich tapestry of Sefiras Ha'Omer and Lag Ba'Omer. Filled with anecdotes and profound insights, this book delves into the history, customs, and lessons of the day and the period, and includes the famous "Bar Yochai" song, with an illuminating translation and commentary. Rabbi Nosson Scherman's Overview presents an absorbing hashkafah/philosophical analysis of the many facets of these days and the personalities whose experience has shaped our perceptions for centuries. That Lag Ba'Omer is a time for weddings and haircuts is known to all -- but the underlying significance of the day, as it is beautifully presented in this book, is known to few. Read. It will be an enriching experience!
