Some 200-300,000 people gather every year on Mount Meron in northern Israel to celebrate the biggest Jewish festival in Israel in honor of the Lag B'Omer holiday. Thousands of Jewish worshippers say prayers, light bonfires and give their three-year-old sons their first haircuts, while celebrating the 33rd day of the counting of the Omer – the day of passing of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.
Photographer Harel Stanton took his camera to one of the religious world's
"hottest" events and returned with unusual sights, experiences and angles from
the Lag B'Omer celebration on Mount Meron. Free food, drink and entertainment is offered to all who come up to Miron on Lag B'Omer.
