Tens of Thousands Get Blessed

reprinted from Arutz 7
17 Tishrei 5769, 16 October 08 11:20

Reports vary, but well over 20,000, possibly more than twice that many, Jews attended the Priestly Blessing at the Western Wall in the Old City of Jerusalem Thursday morning. The blessing is performed twice in the morning prayer service on festival days.

Although Kohanim ("priests") perform the blessing every day in the morning prayers in Israel, a massive service is scheduled on one of the intermediate days of the pilgrimage holidays, at the Western Wall, which is a retaining wall of the Jewish Temple Mount.

Police are of course out in significantly reinforced numbers to prevent Islamist terrorists from turning the holy event into a bloody mess.
