In our latest video, we ventured into the profound realm of Birkat Kohanim (the Priestly Blessing), specifically exploring the third verse of the three verses, where the Torah speaks of Hashem (G-d) favoring us with the words "yisa panav."
A perplexing question arises from this seemingly contradictory statement: How can we implore Hashem to grant us favor when the Torah teaches us that He neither shows favoritism nor accepts bribes? To unravel this age-old question, we delve into the concept of "nesiat panim" and unlock the astonishing depths of the Hebrew language employed by the Torah, particularly within these two words, "יyisa panav."
Furthermore, on the eve of Shavuot (the Festival of Weeks), we forge a meaningful connection between these ideas and the central narrative of Megillat Rut (the Scroll of Ruth), unveiling the intricate interplay that binds them together.
Join us on this captivating exploration as we decipher the enigmatic essence of Birkat Kohanim, uncovering the profound wisdom hidden within the Hebrew language and its powerful connection to Megillat Rut.
