Here Comes The Sun
Tomorrow morning, Jews will mark a once-in-decades holy day called Birkat Hachamah. Every 28 years the sun returns to the same position, at the same time of the week, as it was at its creation. Jews celebrate by thanking God for creating the world.
Here is the blessing: "Blessed are You, Lord our G-d, King of the universe, who reenacts the works of creation."
