The Priestly 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
The priestly blessing is the oldest Jewish talisman and is helpful for protection and spiritual abundance.
