Rambam Bekius
The Mitzvah and Procedure of Birkas Kohanim (Hilchos Tefilah u'Birkas Kohanim 14:1-7)
Show Notes

This afternoon (6/8/22), in our Rambam Bekius chavurah, we began learning a new and exciting topic: Birkas Kohanim, chosen in part because it's featured in this week's parashah. Today, after a brief intro about Qafih's Taryag poem, we learned through the introductory sources in the Rambam about Birkas Kohanim, followed by the halachos outlining the procedure of the berachah outside of Mikdash. Tomorrow we'll contrast this with the procedure IN Mikdash (בג"ה).
