Thousands of people gathered at the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City on Monday for the traditional priestly blessing, Army Radio reported.

The blessing is held at the Kotel - the Hebrew name for the Western Wall - during the intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot, and typically attracts thousands of worshipers.

After the blessing, Israeli chief rabbis Yona Metzger and Shlomo Amar will address the crowds, along with Chief Rabbi of the Western Wall Shmuel Rabinovitch.
