Ultra-Orthodox Jews children look at the Western Wall (background), Judaism's holiest site, reciting the Priestly Blessing, a special prayer performed twice a year, in Jerusalem, 28 March 2013, during the high holiday of Passover. The prayer is only spoken by the Cohanim, the high priests of the ancient temples. Jews who are ultra-Orthodox but not descendents of Cohens take part in the prayer as well. Photo by Sliman Khader
