Thousands Flock to Kosel For Birchas Kohanim

Location: Jerusalem, Israel
October 8, 2017

Ultra-Orthodox Jews cover their heads with their prayer shawls and carry the ‘four species’ during special prayers at the Western Wall, as they recite the Birkat Cohanim or Priestly Blessing in the Old City of Jerusalem, 08 October 2017. The Cohenim are believed to be direct descendants of the priests at the ancient temples. Tens of thousands of Jews flocked to the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, to take part in Succot prayers.  EPA-EFE/ABIR SULTAN
