B’Chasdei Hashem, we’re (Reb Akiva & Rabbi Nati) in Meron for Lag B’Omer. It’s almost midnight but it’s just getting started (as it’s after Shabbat), the bonfires have not yet been lit (to avoid any possibility of people or authorities having to set up on Shabbos).
We’re posting some live clips (via Qik – medium quality cellphone video) and pictures when we can get online. CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY at http://mpaths.com for live updates.
Here’s a few early pictures…
