    Burning Mensch

    Tribal Celebration of Lag B'Omer

    When: Saturday, 5/13/2017 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM


    Come in costume and celebrate the spring holiday of Lag B'Omer, with a spectacular fire festival and party filled with fun, creativity and meaning. 

    We're bringing primal vitality to Lag B'Omer, the Jewish holiday marking the 33rd day of the Counting of the Omer, the period between Passover and Shavuot. The holiday is about treating people with respect—being a "mensch"—and lighting the fires of our own hearts.
