Birkat Hachama

Today is a double update because it involves the same thing, Jewish holidays.

Today is the Blessing of the Sun, a once every twenty-eight years event that is a celebration of the return of the Sun to it's location the day the world was made.

So every Jew in the land that remembered or like the wife and I found out about last weekend, got up early to stare into the sun and Bless God for such a wonderful thing.

Isn't that nice?

It's times like these that I feel the real power of my religion. To know that I am a link in chain that is five thousand years old is very humbling.

And tonight is Pesach, or Passover, to the gentiles. Oi Vey!
