The Tur writes that we celebrate Lag BaOmer because that is the day the students of Rebbe Akiva stopped dying. Why is that a reason to celebrate – they stopped dying because there were none left!
Why don’t we make a shehechiyanu on Sefirat HaOmer?
Why does the Torah mention Shabbos and the Omer in the Parshat HaMoadim – they aren’t moadim!
