Chief Rabbis on Lag Bomer bonfires: ‘Be careful!’ due to extreme heat

The chief rabbis of Israel issued a joint call Tuesday to exercise caution while lighting Lag Ba’omer bonfires, especially in view of the expected heat this year, which could lead to the loss of control over the fires.

Rabbis Yitzchak Yosef and David Lau said, “We must act in accordance with the laws of the holy Torah, at the head of which is ‘Venishmartem me’od lenafshoteichem’ [‘You shall be very careful for your souls’] while obeying the instructions of rescue forces and avoiding fires in places of danger. Be careful on the severe prohibition of using dangerous incendiary materials which could endanger the lives of the public that participates in the many fires.”
