The village of Meron is on its slopes as well as the adjacent Jewish holy site (especially to Orthodox Jews) of the tomb of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai. Leading up to the anniversary of his death on Lag B'Omer, thousands of people camp out along the slopes near the tomb, and on Lag B'Omer itself, hundreds of thousands make pilgrimages to celebrate the occasion.
