Numbers 6:23 "In this way, you shall bless the Children of Israel..."

"Have a good day!" "Take care and be well." "All the best."

Quite often, we say and hear these things.

Wishing people well is one of the ways we can show them that we care.

HaShem cares about us very much. He wants to bless and grace us with all that is good.

He commanded the priests to act on His behalf, granting us His blessings.

Today, even though the Beit HaMikdash is not yet rebuilt, the priests stand before our congregations in synagogues and recite this holy blessing of prosperity and peace.
