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.

On Yom Kippur morning, the kohen is to was his complete hand up until his wrist -  ברכת על נטילת ידים is said.
