Police Surprised by Unprecedented Meron Masses

Some 250,000 worshippers visited Meron during Lag BaOmer 2012, and the surprising increase this year has prompted police to spontaneously allocate additional parking spaces in the vicinity, as all those prepared in advance have reached full capacity.

Around 200,000 Jews have already come to pray and celebrate at Meron on Lag BaOmer 2013, and festivities are expected to continue Monday.
