This week’s article discusses possible disqualifications of Kohanim from participation in birkas kohanim. Although birkas kohanim is not a part of the Temple service, a number of sources indicate that the berachah is related to the Temple service. To what degree does this connection extend? Do blemishes disqualify from participation in birkas kohanim, and if so which blemishes? May Kohanim who transgress aveiros take part in the berachah? These questions, and more, are discussed in this week’s article. This week’s Q & A addresses the question of reciting birkas ha-Torah after sleeping during the day of Shavuos.
