The History of the Ketef Hinnom scrolls:

Ketef Hinnom (Hebrewכֵּתֵף הִינוֹם‬ katef hinom, “shoulder of Hinnom“) is an archaeological site southwest of the Old City of Jerusalem, adjacent to St. Andrew’s Church, now on the grounds of the Menachem Begin Heritage Center.

It is located where the Valley of Rephaim and the Valley of Hinnom meet, on the old road from Jerusalem to Bethlehem.[3]

The scrolls are known as KH1 and KH2. They are written in Paleo-Hebrew characters (see Paleo-Hebrew alphabet) not the Aramaic square script more familiar to most modern readers.

The “Ketef Hinnom” site consists of a series of rock-hewn burial chambers based on natural caverns.[4]

In 1979, two tiny silver scrolls, inscribed with portions of the well-known prophylactic Priestly Blessing from the Book of Numbers and apparently once used as amulets, were found in one of the burial chambers.

The delicate process of unrolling the scrolls while developing a method that would prevent them from disintegrating took three years.

They contain what may be the oldest surviving texts from the Hebrew Bible, dating from around the late 7th to early 6th century BCE, and are now preserved at the Israel Museum.

 

The Priestly Blessing or priestly benediction, (Hebrewברכת כהנים‬; translit. birkat kohanim), also known in rabbinic literature as raising of the hands (Hebrew nesiat kapayim),[1] or Dukhanen (Yiddish from the Hebrew word dukhan – platform – because the blessing is given from a raised rostrum),[2] is a Hebrew prayer recited by Kohanim (the Hebrew Priests, descendants of Aaron).

According to the Torah,[3] Aaron blessed the people after offering sacrifices,[4] and YHWH[5] promises that “I will place my name on their hands” (the Kohanim’s hands) “and bless them” (the Jews receiving the blessing). [6] The Jewish Sages stressed that although the priests are the ones carrying out the blessing, it is not them or the ceremonial practice of raising their hands that results in the blessing, but rather it is God’s desire that His blessing should be transferred by means of the Kohanim’s hands.

Even after the destruction of the second Hebrew Temple in Jerusalem, the practice has been continued in Jewish synagogues, and today in most Jewish communities, Kohanim bless the worshippers in the synagogue during special Jewish prayer services
