Photo Story – Priestly blessing and prayer at the Western Wall during Passover

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Jews cover their heads with prayer shawls as they recite the Priestly Blessing on the high holiday of Passover, in front of the Western Wall, in Jerusalem, 29 March 2021. The prayer, which is performed twice a year, is only spoken by the Cohanim, the high priests of the ancient temples. Jews who are ultra-Orthodox but not descendants of Cohens take part in the prayer too.
