This year's Priestly Blessing in Jerusalem drew thousands of Jews (and a few gentiles as well) to the Western Wall. Take a look at these pictures and maybe you too can partake of the Biblical blessings.
The air at the event in Jerusalem was rife with the kind of excitement one finds in rock concerts.
