“He seems like a good guy, but can I stand one more failed date evening? ” After dozens of typical ‘dumb dates,’ she knew sitting in a dark room watching another movie and having a drink in another dark room wasn’t getting her any closer to marriage. But don’t you think asking questions like this turns the date into some kind of formal interview?
At that point, the descendants of Aaron the High Priest were designated for the Priesthood (see Numbers -18).
I would like to address the more specific issue which is bothering you – the notion that the Kohen has a “superior” status over other Jews, and the corresponding “inferior” status of the Jews they may not marry.
A Kohen’s superior status stems from his privilege and obligation to serve in the Temple.
But am I potentially in over my head, or can a relationship like this have a chance of success? (Don't you love these stereotypical Jewish answers?
) My initial thoughts are that I would imagine such a relationship would prove to be problematic in the long run.
