Here Comes the (Son) Sun

Today's PR piece in the Times about the blessing of the Sun, scientifically completely unverifiable but nonetheless billed as an expression of religious devotion (read: channeled Paganism) by Chabad, can be found HERE.

I have a Chabad video in my collection of the sun rising in the sky and then it morphing, with the aid of some really cool late 80s digital technology, into the Rebbe's head.

Here comes the (Son) Sun!

For a fairly reasonable explanation, check out Shoshana Lockshin's article at My Jewish Learning.

Remind me what time the service is tomorrow. Might want to check it out, but no promises.

PS - Thanks for changing the comment process :-)
