The Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality is calling on residents to celebrate Lag Ba’Omer without the tradition of lighting bonfires. The holiday will take place on Thursday evening and Friday, and the municipality asks for citizens not to make bonfires for safety and environmental reasons. According to the city, bonfires produce air pollution and smoke, and cause difficulties with breathing. This year’s Lag Ba’Omer coincides with Earth Week, during which fell Earth Day on April 22.The Tel Aviv Municipality stresses that it will not be possible to light bonfires on Lag Ba’Omer in places such as the Tel Aviv promenade, gardens, beaches and parks, except for a number of open and exposed fields.Instead of bonfires, the municipality is offering various pro-environment alternatives and activities to celebrate the holiday this year, such as lantern tours and stargazing. In addition, there will also be a number of events at community centers around the city, which will host many activities such as a creative figures workshop, a tour of Tel Aviv Independence Park, carpentry workshops and public singing. The Environmental Protection and Health ministries are also urging Israeli Jews to find alternative ways to celebrate the holiday, it was reported yesterday.
