Families (male and female members) Joining Together during Birkat Kohanim


Paris, France

Rav Linzer, there is an old French custom in some Sephardic communities to have families stand together under the tallit during birkat kohanim, which implies ignoring the mechitzah specifically at this time. We have been asked whether we would allow that over the chagim. What would you advise?


You need to maintain separation of the genders during birkat kohanim, just like the rest of davening.
