The giant tent with its 1,700 seats stands erect as preparations for Lag B’Omer continue at the tziyun of the Rashbi ZY”A in Meron.

The tent was erected this week and when preparations are complete, it will be air conditioned. An estimated 350,000 meals will be distributed in the tent as hundreds of thousands of mispallalim will be visiting the area on Lag B’Omer along with the days before and after.

This year, many will decide to spend Shabbos in Meron and other northern cities including Tzfat and Tiveria as Lag B’Omer begins on motzei Shabbos.
