There are many Jewish holidays.
They involve huge meals (I’m talking at least six courses), lots of praying, and personal reflection. I’ve celebrated them all in the States and thought I knew my favorites; however, I am fortunate to be in Israel where there are a multitude of Israeli holidays which have no connection to Jews outside of Israel.
One of them is Lag B’omer, a holiday that includes bonfires, meat, and a nice story...
...Of course, no Jewish holiday would be complete without food, and this one is no exception. Year Course provided quite a picnic spread: hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken kababs, salad, potatoes, rice, fruit and lethal amounts of hummus.
We were on top of a hill in Jerusalem at night time overlooking the valleys below and under the stars above.
There was a roaring bonfire (fear not, there were marshmallows) and two men playing the drums. I mean real drums. Not those pathetic school band drums, but proper authentic ones.
