Today, some celebrate the yahrzeit of Rabbi Meir Baal Haness.

Who is Rabbi Meir Baal Haness?

Let’s meet three Rabbi Meirs!   1)The Tanna Rabbi Meir, 2) Rabbi Meir Shatz, the author of Akdamus and 3) R’ Meir Katzun.

But one thing’s for sure, there is no reliable record that any one of them passed away on Pesach Sheini!
