Israel’s Minister of Religious Affairs, Yitzchok Waknin, has said that Lag Ba’omer arrangements in Meron will be coordinated this year on a limited basis.
The public may not participate in person at the kever of Rav Shimon Bar Yochai or its environs.
In light of COVID-19, there will be four separate fires: Boyan, Hillel, Toldos Aharon and Gandi.
The gatherings will be livestreamed online and will last about 60 minutes each.
Each fire will feature the participation of just ten people and one rov. No one else will be permitted access anywhere near these sites.
