Welcome to Kehuna.org, the educational website of Igud HaKohanim, the foremost kehuna organization run  by kohanim; our primary focus is today’s kohen and advancing the application of kehuna – the Jewish priesthood.

Kehuna has been a fundamental part of mankind’s relationship with the almighty G-d of Israel since the worlds creation.  It has been a part of the deep-rooted heritage and history of the Jewish people since and even before יציאת מצרים -the exodus from the land of Egypt, and continues to drive an important role in Judaism today.

Kehuna -as much as it is relevant to Judaism today- is also a central theme in the third bet hamikdash, the ultimate redemption of בני ישראל, and the messianic-era where the spirit of peace and unity will prevail among the nation of Israel and all of mankind.

We pride ourselves in delivering to today’s kohen a comprehensive database of what the Torah and halacha expect of today’s kohen. Here you will find a viable means of connecting with us and to other kohanim and to the rich torah and halacha-based heritage of kehuna.
