Chabad Hosts Thousands of Eclipse-Chased Across America – Centers along its path offered a Jewish perspective on the spectacle in the sky – Chabad-Lubavitch News

A total solar eclipse streaked across the United States Monday, Aug. 21. In its 70-mile-wide path, people saw the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into darkness, with trails of light streaming through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.

Millions of people witnessed the historic spectacle as the eclipse traveled a path from Oregon to South Carolina. Chabad centers along its route hosted informative and inspirational programs to provide a Jewish perspective on the event.

Streamers of light are often visible around the silhouette of the moon during a solar eclipse, which will take place next on Monday, Aug. 21.
