Birchas Kohanim

Location: Jerusalem , Israel
April 13, 2017

An ultra-Orthodox Jew cover his head with a prayer shawl while reciting the Priestly Blessing on the high holiday of Passover, in front of the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, in Jerusalem, Israel, 13 April 2017. 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 descendents of Cohens take part in the prayer too.
