Offering blessing to others


"If a Kohen refuses to bless the nation (as he is instructed to bless them in Bamidbar 6), then he will not receive blessing from Gd.

"A Kohen who does bless the nation, though, will receive blessing as well, as Gd said (to Avraham), 'I will bless those who bless you.'"

(Maimonides, Mishneh Torah, Laws of Prayer and the Raising of the Hands [for the blessing] 15:12)

Have a great day,
