“Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying: This is how you shall bless the children of Israel . . .” (Numbers 6:23)

The Hebrew term for the Priestly Blessing is Birkat Kohanim, also known as Nesi’at Kapayim, the “lifting of the hands,” because of the priests’ uplifted hands, through which the divine blessings flow.
