JERUSALEM (AFP) – Tens of thousands of Jewish faithful turned out before sunrise on Wednesday in front of the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and elsewhere in the country to bless the sun in a prayer said once every 28 years.

Elsewhere around Israel,  tens of thousands of Jews sought out hilltops and rooftops to catch the first rays of the sun to recite the prayer.

Birkat Hakhama is said as the sun comes up to mark what according to Jewish tradition is the sun’s return to its position at the moment that the universe was created 5,769 years ago. It returns to the spot once every 28 years.  More on Atlas>>>
