Jewish communities from the Greater Boston area will be jointly hosting a Jewish Unity Day in honor of the Jewish holiday of Lag B’omer. In addition to a a great group rate on tickets to the park the event will feature a concert, rally and kosher complimentary lunch at 12:30 p.m. – 2 p.m. at the park’s pavilion.

Lag B’omer commemorates the lives of two great sages; Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai and Rabbi Akiva. They both set examples of proud perseverance and dedication to the Torah and its teachings during the Roman occupation of Israel. It is a day of unity when family and friends join in harmony with acquaintances as well as strangers in accordance to the teachings of Rabbi Akiva that all people should respect each other. It is a joyous holiday following the instructions of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai to celebrate his passing. It is typically celebrated outdoors, with parades and outings celebrating Jewish unity and pride.

“It’s important for all Jewish people today to have a sense of belonging. This is a fun day for everyone to enjoy the rides at Canobie lake, while having a great Jewish experience,” said Rabbi Mendel Krinsky, director of the Chabad Jewish Center in Needham.
