‘B’rachot Hakohanim’ - The perfect Blessing
In this week’s ‘Torah’ portion, ‘Parsha Naso’, Aaron and his descendants, the ‘kohanim’ (priests), were given instructions by G-d on how to bless the people of Israel”.
We see this in Numbers 6:22-27: “And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them: “The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you, And be gracious to you; The LORD lift up His countenance upon you, And give you peace.” ’ “So they shall put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless them.”
In fact, the ‘Priestly Blessing’ is G-d’s perfect blessing.
This blessing, known as the ‘B’rachot HaKohanim’ (Priestly Blessing), is divided into 3 parts: The guardianship of G-d, the grace of G-d, and the peace of G-d.
