After Bostonians saw hours of rain in the morning and afternoon hours of Lag Ba’Omer, the clouds parted and shined its first rays on the 13th annual Shaloh House Lag BaOmer Extravaganza.
300 children crowded a park in Brighton, Massachusetts to enjoy the festivities in true Bar Yochai spirit while enjoying 3 different moon-bounces and obstacle courses, a variety of carnival style games, designing and flying Lag Ba’Omer kites, and of course a delicious BBQ.
After the activities, children gathered for a grand rally of Pesukim, songs, and stories followed by a unique exotic animal show. The show featured animals such as an alligator, lemur, fox, porcupine, ferret, and large Boa Constrictor snake.

As Rabbi Meyers reminded participants of the ongoing excitement and fun at Gan Israel Boston Summer Camp which takes place at the Shaloh House.
