Thank you to our colleague Joshua Heller for preparing this teshuvah on the blessing to be said upon witnessing a solar or lunar eclipse.
The Blessing to Be Said Upon Witnessing a Solar or Lunar Eclipse
Rabbi Joshua Heller
The Committee on Jewish Law and Standards of the Rabbinical Assembly provides guidance in matters of halkhhah for the Conservative movement. The individual rabbi, however, is the authority for the interpretation and application of all matters of halakhah. This Teshuvah is a position of the chair, issued in response to a time-sensitive question asked of the committee, and has not been reviewed/approved by full committee.
