Lag BaOmer @ SWESRS – including BBQ!

Wednesday May 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for a wonderful evening here at SWESRS, celebrating Lag BaOmer, 6pm-9pm.

Lag BaOmer is the Jewish festival of fire and mysticism. It marks the day when, according to our myths, Rabbi Shimeon bar Yochai received the deep secrets of the Zohar.

We'll have music, a bonfire, barbecue food, and spiritual discussion. Children will be very welcome.

Here is the running order for the evening:

  • 6pm: Food and party games
  • 7:15pm: Ritually lighting the bonfire, and counting the Omer
  • 7:30pm: Spiritual discussion with Sharon Eden
  • 8:15pm: Dancing and celebrating the festival
  • 9pm: Close out

The event is free, but we would love to receive donations. For catering and security we would appreciate if you could let us know if you are planning on attending - admin@swesrs.org.uk / 020 8599 0936.

This event is generously supported by Reform Judaism.
