Birchas Hachama 5769 at K'hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch of Monsey

Hundreds of men, women and children turned out at K’hal Tzemach Tzedek Lubavitch of Monsey today, Wednesday, Erev Pesach 5769, April 8, for the once-in-28-year Birchas HaChama.

Following the singing of the Alter Rebbe’s niggun the bracha was recited by everyone together just as the sun peeked through the clouds for a few moments. This was followed by the rest of the nusach and children saying the 12 pesukim. The crowd then sang and danced to the live music of Rabbi Zalman Goldstein.

Thanks to Reb Dovid Kaplan for the pictures. Thanks to the Ramapo Police Department for organizing the traffic.
