This what it looks like when nearly 100,000 Jews gather by the Western Wall in Jerusalem in order to get blessed by descendants of their high priests. This prayer, which is translated and transliterated for you, is called Birkat Kohanim of the Priestly Blessing, and offers blessings for all the assembled and all of the Jews everywhere. This took place on September 12th, 2022 during the holiday of Succot aka the Feast of the Tabernacles. We shot it from the roof of Aish Hatorah during a fundraising brunch event that we kinda snuck into. Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson made an appearance too, with a huge entourage and security guys. They got asked to leave (kicked out, true story, don’t ask!) but we didn’t because that’s how we roll. So enjoy, follow along and be thankful that you didn’t have to brave the insane crowds!
