April 29, 2009 10:00 AM
Complete with a small plane pulling a banner thanking G-d for creating the world, a historic Blessing of the Sun ceremony in the Uruguayan capital of Montevideo drew the attention of national media. Rabbi Eliezer Shemtov, director of Chabad-Lubavitch of Uruguay, explained the significance of the once-in-28-years service, which occurred the day before Passover, to national television audiences moments after leading the sunrise ceremony. The festivities included the presentation of a certificate to Moises Cohenca, who participated in the ceremony with four generations of his family.
