Lag Ba’Open Mic
- This event has passed.
In a time when we’ve been separated for much too long, what could be better than a good, old-fashioned campfire? NuRoots’ East Side group invites you to ring in Lag Ba’Omer with a celebratory virtual bonfire and talent show! Whether you want to showcase artistic talents or pastimes you’ve enjoyed during quarantine—singing, music, stand-up comedy, poetry, dance, philosophy, world record-setting Rubik’s Cube solving, or anything in between!—or you just want to enjoy the performances and meet some new people, sign up to join us for this happy evening.
Tuesday, April 27
7–8:15 pm pacific
Lag Ba’Omer is a celebratory break in the middle of the Omer, the 49-day period between Passover and Shavuot. It’s traditional to light bonfires on the evening of the holiday, commemorating the immense light our mystical sages introduced into the world through their teachings.
Some (optional) prompts to get your creative juices flowing for your open mic contribution:
- The traditional Lag BaOmer bonfires commemorate the immense light that our mystical sages introduced into the world via their teachings. Who or what brings you light, inspires you? What makes them shine?
- Lag Ba’Omer is a celebratory break in the middle of the Omer, the 49-day period between Passover and Shavuot. How do you find moments of celebration and joy in the midst of a difficult time?
Lag Ba’Omer this year begins at sundown on Thursday, April 29, but we are ringing in the festivities early.
