Thousands of men, women, and children gathered Wednesday night, May 6 in Jewish communities across Brooklyn to mark Lag B'Omer, the 33rd day of the "Omer,"  leading to the day when the Torah was given.  The festivities -- like the large event at the Stolin synagogue  in Borough Park, in photos -- feature  men singing and dancing, with bonfires set as giant Yarzheit candles marking the death of Reb Shimmon, author of the Zohar, which formed the foundation of Kabala.
