Birkat Cohanim 2015

Pesach is one of the three festivals that Jews would visit the Beis HaMikdash when it stood. While we are awaiting the re-building of our Holy Temple, we do still receive a blessing from the Cohanim during Chol HaMoed of Pesach and Sukkot. Since we can not visit the full Temple, we visit the Kotel and pray for the merit to enter the Temple itself, once more.  This year, Birkat Cohanim was today, Monday of Chol HaMoed. As usual, thousands (estimated at 50 000) flocked to the Kotel to receive this special blessing from the Cohanim the Priests. 

Here are just a few photographs for those who were unable to visit the Kotel and Birkat Cohanim in person. Included in the photo's is one of 3 little birds who came to join the women, watching and enjoying the Tefillah of the day.

May we all merit to re-unite in the re-built Yerushalayim with the Beis HaMikdash. May Every Jew receive all the blessings they require in Ruchnius and Gashmius and the blessing flow out from the Holy Temple to the rest of the world.
