Why are there mourning customs during Sefirat Ha’Omer?

Rav Bigon, the Head of the Machon and Rosh Yeshiva, dives into the reasons behind the customs of mourning during the first part of Sefirat Ha’Omer, until Lag Ba’omer. 

Why is this considered a period of mourning? Why do we pay respects with changing our customs by not getting married, listening to live music and other mourning customs for the death of Rabbi Akiva’s students?

Rav Bigon explains the deeper meaning behind the lack of honor amogst Rabbi Akiva’s students, and how that translated into a national tragedy that we commemorate even today.
