At the center of this week's Torah portion stands the Priestly Benediction – Birkat Kohanim. Most familiar to us today as the blessing parents offer their children at the Shabbat dinner table, this prayer was originally recited by the Kohanim (priests) as a blessing for the Children of Israel. At the conclusion of the three part blessing, God reminds Moshe (who is to teach this blessing to Aaron and his sons): And they shall place My name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
