Westborough: Lag B’Omer celebration« Back to Events
April 28, starting at 12:30 p.m. at Lake Chauncy (off Lyman Street) in Westborough, Chabad of Westboro will be hosting a grand Jewish community BBQ and Bonfire, complete with pony rides, great food and drink, roasting marshmallows, Jewish music, and lots of fun. Lag B’Omer, as the holiday is known in Hebrew, marks the day of passing of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai, a 2nd Century Talmudic sage and Kabbalist. The day also marks the end of a tragic epidemic that claimed the lives of thousands of Jewish scholars at the same time period. Chabad invites the public to attend, join old friends, meet new friends, and have a grand time! Admission is free, with food available for purchase. For more information, call Chabad at 508-366-0499 or email Dvora Green at Dvora@chabadwestboro.org.
