|Birkat Hachama (Blessing on the Sun) - Stephen Colbert Frees His Jews|
Why does Birkat Hachama take place only every 28 years?
The starting point is Tuesday at 6:00 pm. Now, since a year lasts 365 1/4 days - or 52 weeks plus a remainder of 1 1/4 days - it follows that after one year, the Sun will return to the spring equinox, but will fall 1 1/4 days later in the week: Wednesday at midnight. After two years, the Sun will return to the spring equinox, but it will now be 2 x 1 1/4 days later in the week: Thursday at 6:00 am. Only after 28 years, will the Sun return to the spring equinox on Tuesday at 6:00 pm.
It may be said that poems are in one way like icebergs: only about a third of their bulk appears above the surface of the page.
