Shalom!   This week in our Torah portion, Naso, YHWH commands the Aaronic priests to bless the people of Israel by placing His Name upon them. In the beautiful words of the Aaronic blessing, we have the amazing opportunity to see an example of what our Creator Himself considers to be a proper "blessing":   Bemidbar/Numbers 6:22 And YHWH spoke to Moshe, saying: 23 "Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, 'This is the way you shall bless the children of...
