Birkat Ha-chama, a rare opportunity to do a mitzvah (once every 28 years).
Birkat Ha-chama is a blessing over the sun–over all of creation, really. One has to see the sun to say the blessing. Taxman saw the sunrise.
I was up before the sun, as usual, and said the bracha later from my neighbor’s terrace, between scuttling clouds.

We got very lucky with our $17/lb shmura matzah. Taxman cheated a little bit.
Seder for five. Plenty of food if anyone wants to join us tonight.
