On Sunday evening, children throughout Israel gathered in order to light the traditional Lag B'Omer bonfires. While the actual holiday began on Saturday night, the Israeli Education Ministry decided to postpone the nationwide school vacation by one day, moving it from Sunday to Monday, in light of the requests from the Haredi and religious sectors.

In honor of the holiday, JerusalemOnline invites its readers to check out some amazing pictures from the Lag B'Omer festivities.
