  1. Maybe one of the many Talmidei Chachomim who comment here can help me. I was under the impression (I guess I was wrong) that one can listen to music on lag Baomer only after day break of Lag Baomer itself (Miktzas Hayom)and that music at night is still assur. There is a Heter for Chasunos only when in a place where one cannot make a Chasuna on Lag Baomer – no hall available etc – so then there is a heter for Layl Lag Baomer.

    However, where is it written that one is allowed to listen to music the night of Lag Baomer? It must be somewhere since all these Hadlokos are taking place. I was just curious if anyone knows where. Thank you.

  2. spilling an accellerant like gasoline,kerosene eyc….is very dangerous the fire can backup and explode the container

  3. why are there kids around the fires?? Why is no one in charge to make sure the kids are far away? When will everyone learn – when chas v’sholom….

  4. no ‘siechel’ how the parents and kids act with ignorance around a fire

    now i know why there is a ‘shidduch” crisis

  5. To Oy Vey,
    If one holds the issur for all of the sefirah days from Pesach till Shavuos, not including Chol Hamoed, Rosh Chodesh, Lag BaOmer, and Rosh Chodesh Sivan till Shavuos, you end up with 33 days. In that case, Lag BaOmer becomes mutar immediately and one need not wait till the morning.
    In addition, if one starts at Rosh Chodesh (1 Iyar) and goes till Shavuos, he gets 33 days without Lag Baomer, freeing up the entire day of Lag Ba’omer.
    The only ones with a problem are those that start at Pesach and Lag Baomer is the 33rd day.
