About the Birkat Kohanim (Priestly Blessing):
The priestly benediction, expressed in three Scriptural verses and chanted at the end of the Amidah prayer, was part of the daily Temple service. Every morning and evening the Priests (Kohanim) raised their hands up and pronounced the Birkat Kohanim (priestly blessing) from a special platform (duchan).
In Yisrael, Kohanim chant it daily in the synagogues; in the Galut (Diaspora), it is chanted only on festivals. Those of priestly descent remove their shoes, wash their hands, and ascend the platform in front of the Ark. Then they face the congregation and, with fingers stretched in a symbolic arrangement (pictured in art) underneath the tallit (prayer shawl) covering their face, they repeat the priestly blessing word for word after the chazzan.
The worshipers refrain from looking at the Kohanim during the repetition of the fifteen majestic words of which the priestly benediction is composed, to indicate that they emanate from the highest spheres. This priestly service is termed "duchenen" from duchan (platform)
Derived from BaMidbar / Num. 6:24-26, the text of Birkat Kohanim is often regarded as the "pearl" of the Written Torah.
