Why do we light bonfires on Lag aOmer? Rabbi Akiva traveled to the rabbis of the South to teach them. On Lag Ba'Omer, he started instructing these rabbis, his last five disciples. And from that day, the world began to brighten from these five points of light. To commemorate this event, in the Land of Israel we light bonfires to symbolize the great light that the Torah represents. Reply
