How Great is Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai? Lag B’Omer Prayers for You…

I’m so excited because it’s almost Lag B’Omer!  There is a story told that when the Ohr Chaim zt”l first asked his students to make a pilgrimage from Jerusalem to Meron to pray at Rebbe Shimon Bar Yochai’s tomb, he got off his donkey at the bottom of Mt. Meron, got on his hands and legs and ‘hee-hawed’ like a donkey all the way up to the tomb.  Apparently it was to show his students that he compared to Rebbe Shimon zt”l, as his donkey compared to him.
When I heard that story, I thought “well then what does that make me?”.
Rebbe Shimon’s tomb is powerful to pray at any day, but on his yahrzeit – the heavens are wide open.
Our prayer agents are travelling there to pray their hearts out for you on this 33rd day of the Omer.
Don’t miss out!  They will either say your prayer and tehillim, or they will say your prayer as well as the special long prayer written at the tzaddik’s tomb.A donation of $18 or $36 respectively is requested.

Not to be missed!

Requests need to be made in the next few days.

PRAY FOR ME AT RABBI SHIMON’S TOMB ON LAG B’OMER!
(You can choose which type of prayer you would like under “Prayer Option”.)

With great love and support from Jerusalem,
