Thousands of people flocked to the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday for the traditional Birkat Kohanim ceremony, the priestly blessing, held annually on the intermediate days of Passover and Succot. During the priestly blessing, hundreds of priests known as Cohens, descended from Aaron and the tribe of Levi, raise their hands and bless the masses.

"Tell Aaron and his sons, 'This is the way you are to bless the Israelites....'" (Numbers 6:23).
