Lag BaOmer festivities on Mount Meron. Women and men pray, and Upsherin (Halaqah) ceremonies (first haircut for three-year-olds) are conducted. A procession carries the ancient Torah scroll from the Abbo House in Safed to Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochais tomb in Meron. Safed residents watch the parade from the balconies. At dusk, a bonfire is lit by Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochais tomb, and religious Jews dance and sing around it.
