Shabbat Shalom!

I love this blessing and thought you might like to see the Hebrew for this powerful prayer. Moshe was instructed by YHWH to have Aharon and his sons bless the children of Yisra’el with this in order that YHWH Himself could bless them. Personally, I find this to be a beautiful way to begin our Shabbat and bless my wife and children every erev Shabbat. The Birkat Kohanim is found in B’midbar (Numbers) 6:22-27

Y’varekhekha YHWH v’yishmerekha

YHWH bless you and guard you;

Yaer YHWH panaiv eleikha vichunneka

YHWH make His face shine upon you, and show favor to you;

Yissa YHWH panaiv eleikha v’yasem l’kha shalom

YHWH lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.
