VIDEO: Historic video of Lag B'omer in Miron 75 years ago

Interesting  historic video of   Lag Baomer in Miron in 1940 (no sound) with the previous Boyaner Rebbe lighting the Madurah in Har Miron. The Rizhiner  rebbe had a chazaka going back 180 years to light the madurah at the kever of Rav Shimom bar Yochai. The right to light was passed on to the Boyaner rebbes. Video is courtesy of Israel state archives. view Video below

    I believe that's the Rizhiner who had the chazaka, not the "Rodziner". Boyan is a descendent of Rizhin (along with Sadiger, Chortkov, Buhush, etc.)
