Transcript of Bircat Cohanim
How should a person listening to Birkat Cohanim stand?
Once you have finished a mitzvah if you start it again it is not Bal Tosif.
It is a mitzvah for the congregation and not you. Therefore it is not Bal Tosif because the people haven't done the mitzvah before.
therefore we do both and we face the Cohanim to be face to face and close our eyes to concentrate
In the Beit Hamikdash the congregation would close their eyes so that they can concentrate so we too should close our eyes.
Quotes the Pasuk which says Emor lahem-say to them. Just like you say to them in a conversation you need to face the Cohanim.
