Fred Mogul has been covering healthcare and medicine for WNYC since 2002.
WNYC's Fred Mogul tells Soterios Johnson on Morning Edition about the tradition, as well as one celebration this morning in Borough Park, Brooklyn:
A Birkat Hachamah ceremony in 1981 was held on the observation deck of the World Trade Center's South Tower. A rabbi planned to dedicate this morning's blessing to the memory of those who died in the September 11 attacks, and another group was to pray on the deck of a 17th-story penthouse near Ground Zero.
