Sukkot in Jerusalem: Blessing of the Kohanim Today at the Western Wall


Today is the second day of Chol Hamoed Sukkot in Israel, and it's the traditional day for thousands to gather in front of the Western Wall for the blessing of the Kohanim.

We're celebrating Sukkot in Jerusalem this year, but weren't able to get to the Old City this morning in time for the massive gathering. But thanks to the prompt posting by Your Jewish News, we are able to show you the complete series of three blessings only hours after it occurred.

Chag Sameach!
