Only 10 worshipers for Birkat Hacohanim at the Western Wall

Instead of the traditional mass attendance at Birkat Hacohanim (Blessing of the Priests) for Passover, only 10 worshipers attended the rite at the Kotel this year due to the restrictions imposed on gatherings because of the coronavirus. Prominent among them was US Ambassador David Friedman.

Sunday morning, the Health Ministry reported a death toll of 103 from the virus and 10,878 confirmed cases including 136 in serious condition and 123 on respirators.
