Several thousand Kohanim gathered at the Western Wall on Tuesday to give their priestly blessing to the people of Israel.

The annual service, which takes place during the intermediate days of Passover, was watched by several other thousand visitors.

Traffic was backed up in and around the Old City during the day.
