Vort on Parshas Nasso
Birchas Kohanim is divided into three pasukim/sentences.
The first pasuk יברכך ה’ וישמרך contains two words, aside from Hashem’s name – alluding to the two months between Pesach and Shavuos.
The second pasuk יאר ה’ פניו אליך ויחנך contains four words, aside from Hashem’s name – implying the four months between Shavuos and Sukkkos.
And the third pasuk ישא ה’ פניו אליך וישם לך שלום includes six words, aside from Hashem’s name – indicating the six months between Sukkos and Pesach.
This shows us that the brachos – blessings from Birchas Kohanim extend year-round, from one Yom Tov to the next.Go back to Parshas Nasso
