In the 2nd aliyah of Parshas Shemini, Moshe and Aharon bless Bnei Yisroel that the presence of Hashem should come down into their midst. Aharon blesses the people as well, and he raises his hands for this bracha. This is similar to the raising of Moshe's hands during the war with Amalek, in order to turn our hearts toward Hashem. We recognize that our efforts are not what accomplish; rather, it is Hashem's doing that makes our work come to fruition.
