    This is Birkat Hachama* at the Western Wall in Jerusalem Isreal, on April 8, 2009 (14 Nisan 5769 on the Hebrew calendar). *Birkat Hachama: Birkat Hachama (ברכת החמה, 'Blessing of the Sun') refers to a Jewish blessing that is recited in appreciation of the Sun once every 28 years, when the vernal equinox, as calculated by tradition, falls on a Tuesday at sundown. Jewish tradition says that when the Sun completes this cycle, it has returned to its position when the world was created. According to Judaism, the Sun has a 28 year solar cycle known as machzor gadol (מחזור גדול, 'the great cycle'). A solar year is estimated as 365.25 days and the 'Blessing of the Sun', being said at the beginning of this cycle, is therefore recited every 10,227 (28 times 365.25) days.
