Very vague letter. What does "לארגן הסעות ליראי ה׳ אל עבר הרי הגליל.... באופן כשר ומועיל"? seems more like advocating NOT to go to Meron so not to conform to their system or to recognize their power over it etc. I've heard that Toldos Aron actually do the fire/chalakas somewhere else close to Meron.

Somehow I feel like the Chasam Sofer, for example, would laugh you out the door.

CS OC 233 is quite clear about his feelings on Meron (and Lag b'Omer in general).

Orach Chaim. Nice to know we have some of the biggest names in Judaism covered here between the various members.

The Ch"S went as far as to say that this whole making Lag B'omer as a Y"T, as well as prioritizing Meron and Tzefas over Yerushalayim was the reason for the 1837 earthquake in Tzefas. In his famous Hesped on that tragedy. https://beta.hebrewbooks.org/reader/reader.aspx?sfid=21254#p=365&fitMode=fitwidth&hlts=&ocr=.

(I think it was Satmar Rov who said that if the Holy Ch''S would have been in Meron on Lag b'Omer and experience himself the simcha there and the kedusha of Reb Shimon's presence he wouldn't been so opposed to it)

Lol Yehuda Geberer just mentioned this on one of this podcasts. The Chasam Sofer has zillions of descendants.

Right, but he (and all others from his generation, even the Rebbes famous for their Kabbalah) would be very opposed to what we see today, how priorities are totally out of order.

What are they claiming as their reasoning?
Not saying anything.  Only thing said so far was Kahana saying that everything is going perfectly as planned. Maybe all here that defended the plan and looked down upon those that raised issues with it will see how dead wrong they were.

Buses being stopped in fields outside Meron for 3+ hours waiting for them to be let in, no bathrooms, food, water. There are 70+yr old ppl there.

That's not what anyone here said. We said that the reaction some are having is reckless and irresponsible. The government definitely has their issues to clear up.

Indeed but was unfortunately bound to happen. How can you clear 4000 (16000/4 hours) people every hour while working out if they are coming or going?

Agreed with the fixes except that I disagree that we're not supposed to be the responsible party. The religious should be the most proper and responsible party always.

They had a year to plan for that.

How many people (peak/avg) were estimated to be on the mountain last year on Lag Baomer?
