The Lag Ba’Omer celebration in the town of Meron in northern Israel was truly an expression of Jewish unity, as hundreds of thousands of Jews from around the world gathered for the bonfire at the Tomb of the ancient Jewish scholar and mystic Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.

Arutz Sheva caught up with three worshippers from Chicago, Miami, and Baltimore who pointed out that the celebration was the “craziest” they’ve ever seen.

“Nowhere in America do you get such celebrations,” they declared.
