Do Jewish rabbis hold their hands that way when giving blessings?

Some Chasidim and Orthodox rabbis apparently do. That is what he has been saying in his biography for decades.

Thank you.

I think the blessing is from Numbers 6:24–26, which reads:

[24] The LORD bless thee, and keep thee:
[25] The LORD make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee:
[26] The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.

So why do those rabbis put their hand into that position?

It resembles the Hebrew letter shin.
