The Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation Announces a Global Torah Event: The Inner Meaning of the Birkas Hachamah
This year on Erev Pesach, the Jewish people will be granted the rare opportunity to recite the blessing of Birkas HaChamah, the blessing on the sun, which is recited only once every 28 years. But what is the meaning of this blessing, which will cause Jews young and old from South America to Scandinavia, from Hong Kong to New York, to emerge from their homes to greet the dawn? To ensure that all who partake in this outpouring of brocha are able to endow it with its full intent and meaning, the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation is presenting a global learning event on Birkas Hachama.
Rabbi Avraham Chaim Feuer and Rabbi Paysach Krohn, two world renowned speakers, will provide deep, inspiring insights into the inner meaning of the brocha, and the unique, vital role in Creation that Hashem assigned to the sun. The event will take place in hundreds of locations around the world, between Purim and Pesach. There are only a few chances in a lifetime to make this brochah. Join with thousands of Jew around the world to make the most of the moment, and fulfill this unique mitzvah in a most meaningful, powerful way.
The Inner Meaning of Birkas Hachama will take place at Anshe Emes, Sunday, March 22 at 7:45 PM. There will be a $10 suggested donation per person.
