Lag BaOmer for the year 2005 is celebrated/ observed on sundown of Thursday, May 26th ending at sundown on Friday, May 27th.


Lag BaOmer in the Hebrew calendar falls on the 18th of Iyar. The day celebrates the death and life of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai who was a Mishnaic sage back in the 2nd century.

Why do Jewish holidays start at nighttime?

According to the Torah, the story of creation in Genesis says “And it was evening, and it was morning day one”, “And it was evening, and it was morning; the second day”, thus night comes before day. So for the Jewish calendar all days begin at nightfall and end the next day at nightfall including holidays.
