Blessing of the Moon

The sages of the Talmud write that the renewal of the moon each month reminds us of the magnificent wonders of god’s creation, as if the divine presence in our world, so often hidden, is coming out to greet us. Because the moon has the most visible cycle of all the stars and planets, we take the occasion of its renewal to make a blessing in appreciation of the entire masterpiece of celestial orchestration.
