Re: Cohanim and Levites #dna

The Cohen lines (Kohanim, or priestly class) are descended from Aaron, while the Levites are a tribe.
One is Jewish IF one's mother is Jewish, however one's tribal status was given by the father.
Therefore, while my mother is a Kohanim "ha-Cohen", I am not because my father was not Jewish.
I am "ha-Isreal" or of Jacob.
