    Jerusalemites in once every 28 years ritual

     

    Tens of thousands of Jerusalemites greeted the sunrise today by reciting a special blessing that is only said once every 28 years--when the sun is at exactly the same position that it was at creation.

     

    Prayer quorums formed on rooftops all over the city in addition to the 50,000 people who gathered at the Western Wall to recite the blessing together at sunrise.
