Re: Genetic traits

In biblical Judaism, the Levites were the tribe from which the hereditary
priesthood were drawn, and the generality of Levites were permitted to marry
out i.e. marry other jews from different traibes. The Cohens were the iner
family of the levitical tribe from whom were drawn the hereditary high
priests - they were only allowed to marry other Cohens.

Best wishes
