Ultra Orthodox Jewish children use a cardboard mask as a face-shield to look into the bonfire, during celebrations of the Jewish holiday of Lag Baomer in the Ultra orthodox neighborhood of Meah Shearim in Jerusalem on May 17, 2014. Lag Baomer commemorates the death of Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai, one of the most important sages in Jewish history 1800 years ago. The most well-known custom of Lag BaOmer is the lighting of bonfires throughout Israel and in Jewish communities worldwide. Photo by Yonatan Sindel/Flash90Steve
