Zeidy Zakon: Zeidy Visits Meron

Rabbi Zakon

Zeidy, surprise! What’s the surprise? We packed your jeep to get it ready for our trip to Meron. Tons of food, lots of water bottles. We’re all ready for Lag B’Omer. Kinderlach, this is really beautiful. What a chesed! Only one problem; we’re not going to Meron by jeep.

meron fireWe’re not going??? But Zeidy, it’s Lag B’Omer.

Of course we’re going. If hundreds of thousands of Jews are going to be there, we should miss out? But we’re traveling light; no need to take food. 

No food?!

I’m already hungry.

We’re going to Meron first class by … plane! I have a friend with a private plane, so we cut the travel time in half and have the fun of flying over Eretz Yisrael.

Wowwwww!

Super.

AMAZING !!!

What a view. Eretz Yisrael at twilight is beautiful from the air.

I can see the Kinneret and there’s the Mediterranean Sea.

Check out all those fires everywhere. And the smoke!

Those are the enormous medurot just being lit.

Is a medurah a fire-breathing dragon?

No, Devorala, it’s Hebrew for the huge bonfires that everyone lights on Lag B’Omer in honor of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai.
