This Morning: ‘Birkat Cohanim’ at Kotel

The traditional Birkat Cohanim (Priestly Benediction) ceremony will take place this morning (Thursday) at Jerusalem’s Western Wall (Kotel) at roughly 10:00 a.m.

The occasion, established by the late Rabbi Menachem Mendel Gefner, a former Jerusalem resident, takes place during the intermediate days of the Jewish holidays of Sukkot and Passover.
