Voisin / TWP NEG NUMBER: 207126 Washington, DC A group of people at the Lincoln Memorial marking Birkat Ha-hammah, an ancient Jewish ritual that happens once every 28 years, when the sun is in a certain position on the same day Genesis says the sun was created. This group is one of many around the world marking the ritual. Blessings and rituals have to do with honoring the sun, life cycles and now, environmentalism.
