Rabbi Nachum Dov Breuer, the rebbe of Boyan hasidic movement, affixed a mezuzah to the doorpost of the new building of the Or HaRashbi yeshiva, next to the Tomb of Rabbi Shim'on Bar Yochai (Rashbi) in Meron on Friday, dedicating the building ahead of the dedication of a Torah scroll and a festive finishing of reading a cycle of the Kabbalistic work, the Zohar, on Saturday night to usher in Lag Ba'Omer. The head of the school updated the rabbi about the events, after which the rebbe held a L'chaim Tisch to toast the facility and share words of Torah around a table.

The Lag Ba'Omer festivities will include the lighting of candles at the Tomb of Rabbi Shim'on Bar Yochai by the Boyan hasidim. Taking part in the observance will be Deputy Religious Services Minister, Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan.
