Hey everyone. I’ve never really been too religious, and pretty much stopped observing (with the exception of major holidays) since my bar mitzvah. My parents told me today that I’m a Kohan as it just randomly came out in a dinner conversation. I found online that it means I’m a descendant of a priest, but I don’t exactly understand what this means, or how it is important. Apparently I’m a Kohan on both my father and mother’s side if that means anything. I’d like to try to understand. Thanks for any help or advice.
I (21 M) found out today that I’m Kohanim. What does this mean?
