Lag B'Omer

Air date 05/18/14

The holiday of Lag B'Omer is here. Its name translates from Hebrew roughly as the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer – but knowing only that isn't much help. The holiday has a lot of layers, from the mystical to the matrimonial to the sartorial. Sunday on “Sounds Jewish,” songs and comedy to mark Lag B'Omer and illuminate its many themes.
