Overview

Vaad Hakohanim is a dynamically growing organization of kohanim*, and for kohanim. Geared to raise the halachic awareness of kohanim, and to facilitate the implementation of their unique birthright, Vaad Hakohanim continues to make a major impact on the general awareness of kohanim worldwide. Through classes, newsletters, academic publications, and informational resources for halachic questions, kohanim have finally found answers to questions that have been bothering them for years. Structural inspection and modifications in public buildings and thoroughfares have enabled kohanim to use otherwise prohibited places.

* In Jewish Law (Hebrew,"halacha"), the direct male descendants of the biblical Aaron, brother of Moses, have a distinct personal status in Judaism.
