VIDEO & PHOTOS: Tens of Thousands Attend Birchas Kohanim At The Kosel


Tens of thousands of people gathered from all over Eretz Yisrael at the Kosel on the second day of Chol Hamoed Sukkos in Israel for birchas kohanim. Chief Rabbis Yona Metzger and Rabbi Shlomo Amar led the brichas kohanim, flanked by the Rabbi Rabinovich of the Kosel and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. Security forces were on high alert as they limited and coordinated both vehicular and foot traffic in the area to ensure that people would be able to get to and from the Kosel in a safe and timely manner.

  1. I was really excited to see the video. Once I started watching it a little voice inside said this wasn’t okay- How is looking at the hands of the Kohaniim okay on video when we’ve been told it’s assure to see them in shul? I called my Rav who is as straight forward as they come and he said it WASN’T OKAY! There are probably heterim to view it,but WHY LOOK FOR HETERIM?

    Chag Samayach.
