If my last three posts offended you or made no sense to you, I hope I can win you back with today’s post.
This is one of most beautiful videos I have ever seen.
It was shot in the arctic circle and demonstrates one of the more fascinating phenomena on planet earth. The sun barely rises above the horizon, moves a bit to the side and then sets shortly thereafter.
Much of Jewish law is predicated on when the sun rises and sets. It assumes a fairly balanced day as far as daylight and darkness with variations for summer and winter. But I just can’t imagine a 2 hour Shabbos or 2 hour fast day. Maybe that is why orthodox Jews don’t live (as far as I know,) in the arctic circle.
Our world is so beautiful. Enjoy it!
