During the time of the Omer, 24,000 students of Rav Akiva, one of the greatest souls to ever exist perished in a plague due to their lack of human dignity and love towards one another. Only five students survived, one of them being Rav Shimon Bar Yochai who also chose to leave the world on the same day the plague ended- Lag B'Omer.
Join Michael as he reveals how we can connect with Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the Zohar, our own secrets and the persistance to manifest our potential.
The thirty-third day of the Omer is the day when kabbalist Rav Shimon Bar Yochai, the author of the Zohar, left this physical reality. On this day we can connect with the Light that Rav Shimon revealed throughout his life and the Light of the Zohar, which embodies that light of immortality that was lost on Mount Sinai.
