unayhcehehS/Shehechyanu (2000)

(Shehechyanu (Hebrew: ברכת שהחיינו‎, “Who has given us life”) a blessing of thanksgiving or commemoration recited when something occurs which is rare or infrequent, from which one derives pleasure or benefit. Also at the recovery from a long illness; arrival after a sea voyage, first taste of fresh fruit after the new year, seeing a friend for the first time after 30 days, and dedication of first born son. Talmudic record (Berachot 54a, Pesakhim 7b, Sukkah 46a, etc) indicates it is over 1500 years old. This is the last recording I made before I started testosterone; played backwards.)
