Lag BaOmer Songs

Thursday evening April 29, 2021 is Lag BaOmer, the 33rd day of the Omer. The folk-custom is to sing around a campfire at a “kumsitz,” meaning “come” and “sit.” We will gather at 7 pm in the BEKI courtyard. Please wear a mask and bring your own folding chair. We’ll sing niggunim—which have no words—as well as traditional American songs and Jewish songs. If it’s raining, the kumsitz will be canceled.
