Other pilgrimages this summer

The other two great monotheistic religions, which all descend from the patriarch Abraham, also practice pilgrimage.

Muslims go on hajj at least once in their lifetimes. This year’s pilgrimage begins in Mecca on the evening of July 7 and ends on the evening of July 14.

An example of a Jewish pilgrimage is the Lag BaOmer pilgrimage to Mount Meron. Here’s a fascinating article I read this evening about what took place on May 18: https://religionnews.com/2022/05/17/what-is-the-lag-baomer-pilgrimage/.
