Today’s photograph taken by Yehoshua Halevi depicts the priestly blessings at the Western Wall. The “kohanim” (“priests”) have a unbroken chain of lineage from Aaron, the high priest. They cloak themselves with a tallit (prayer shawl) so they cannot be seen at the time they are blessing the people, a time of God’s revelation.
