New Genetic Research Indicates Jewish priesthood has multiple lineagesRecent research on the Cohen Y chromosome indicates the Jewish priesthood, the Cohanim , was established by several independent male lines rather than a single male lineage of the ancient Hebrew times.

Using the new data, Hammer and his team were able to pinpoint the geographic distribution of a genetically resolved Cohen Modal Haplotype and tease next to a variety of male lines that founded the priesthood in ancient Hebrew times. The more fully resolved Cohen Modal haplotype accounts for almost 30 % of Cohanim Y chromosomes from both Ashkenazi and non – Ashkenazi Jewish communities, is virtually absent in non-Jews, and likely traces to a common male ancestors , the live around 3,200 years ago in the Middle East.
