The Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation Announces a Global Learning Event: The Inner Meaning of Birkas Hachamah


sunThis year, on Erev Pesach, Klal Yisroel will be granted the rare opportunity to recite the bracha of Birkas Hachamah, the blessing on the sun, which is recited only once every 28 years.

But what is the meaning of this bracha, 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 bracha 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 will provide deep, inspiring insights into the inner meaning of the bracha, 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. See the full page ad in your newspaper for local date, time and location.

There are only a few chances in a lifetime to make this bracha. Join thousands of Jew around the world to make the most of the moment and fulfill this unique mitzvah in a most meaningful, powerful way.
