THE HIGH PRIEST BLESSING BREASTPLATE
Aaronic Blessing Numbers 6:24-26 engraved on back
The breastplate (choshen) was one of the eight priestly garments worn by the high priest (kohen gadol) when serving in the Holy Temple. It featured twelve precious stones, corresponding to the 12 tribes of Israel, and served as a medium through which G‑d provided direction to the Jewish nation
.A piece of parchment, known as the urim vetumim, was inserted within the folds of the breastplate, upon which was written one of G‑d’s sacred names.
The letters engraved into each stone would light up to reveal the Divine answer that was asked of Hashem through the bearer of the breastplate.
