“Blessing of the Sun,” the newest release from Jewish Educational Media, presents the historic 1981 gathering outside Lubavitch World Headquarters, where thousands of men, women and children blessed G‑d for creating the sun.

Editors spent an average of two hours for each minute of restored footage, which was gleaned from a stock of professional and amateur film and video.

The footage was made available through JEM’s Living Archive Restoration & Preservation Project.
