Looking for when is Lag B’omer in 2017?

If yes, you have come to the right place. Lag B’omer in 2017 will be observed on Saturday, 13th May.

Lag B’Omer is celebrated on the 33rd day of the Omer. The Omer is counted for 49 days between the end of Passover and the holiday of Shavuot. Jewish communities in the United States may celebrate Lag B’Omer by having bonfires for family and friends, while some Jewish people may choose to get married on this day. This is because mourning practices that occur during the Omer period are lifted on this date.

However, Lag B’omer in 2017 will start on the evening of Saturday, 13th May and will end on the evening of Sunday, 14th May. There are no set meals for Lag B’Omer. It’s a flexible holiday that is usually celebrated with a picnic or barbecue.
