Those planning to travel to Meron should bring along, and drink, plenty of water.

Hundreds of thousands, from across the Jewish world, are expected to be in Meron during Lag BaOmer, in honor of the hillula of Rabi Shimon bar Yochai.

The various hachnasas orchim organizations in Meron have added air conditioned tents and will be distributing much more water and cold drinks than in other years.
