The Priests, or Kohanim, bless the people. Wrapped in their prayer shawls, they raise their hands in prayer, singing the prayer together as if one.

 

In this boldly abstracted depiction of the Priestly Blessing, the folds of the tallitot and the black stripes that adorn them flow into each other, intertwining each individual Kohan into one cohesive unit, reciting the blessing in the names of all.
