~ This Week’s Torah Trivia ~

Last Week’s Question: During this week we celebrated Lag B’Omer. What is it all about?

Answer: Lag B’Omer stands for 33rd day of Omer. We learn that on this day the many Students of Rabbi Akiva stopped dying. The first 33 days of Omer are sad days. On 33rd day of Omer the mourning stops.
