blessing was handed to Moses when he completed the preparation
of the Lord's temple at the time of the Israeli tribe’s journey in the
desert. The blessing was given to Moses to protect Israel from the Evil eye.
The blessing brings spiritual protection and abundance.
The priestly blessing has been
passed from generation to generation in a very precise way that
contains secrets relating to its number of letters, and the exact way
of reciting the blessing.
When recited, the Cohen (priest) raises his hands with his palms facing
outward and the thumbs of his outspread hands touching. The four
fingers on each hand are split into two sets of two fingers each
(forming the letter Shin).
The translations of the blessings are as follows:
May the lord bless you and protect you
May the Lord shine his face to you and be gracious to you
May the lord turn his face to you and give you peace
priestly blessing is the oldest Jewish talisman and is helpful for
protection and spiritual abundance.
