Birchas Kohanim At The Kotel

Location: JERUSALEM, Israel
October 19, 2016

Ultra-Orthodox Jews cover their heads with their prayer shawls and carry the ‘four species’ during special prayers at the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest site, as they recite the Birkat Cohanim or Priestly Blessing in Jerusalem, Israel, 19 October 2016. 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.
