Lag B’Omer Celebrated in South Brunswick

There might have been more comfortable ways to spend Lag B’Omer, which fell on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, than sweltering in the intense heat of a New Jersey cemetery, but that’s what made the spectacle in Floral Park Cemetery in South Brunswick all the more significant and inspiring.

But this event was not only during the day.

Starting on Motzei Shabbat, and throughout the night, thousands of people from all different walks of life flocked to the cemetery from all areas of New York, New Jersey and even other states and countries.

All came to daven in the zechut of the Bobover Rebbe, Rav Naftali, zy”a, who once made a mysterious comment alluding to his connection to Rabbi Shimon on Lag B’Omer.

The piercing cries of the Yehi Ratzon, recited after Tehillim every 15 minutes or so, swept all those who entered into the uplifting atmosphere.
