    Thank you very much! I started these Jewish write-ups for a group at my Hillel and it's enjoyable being able to delve into stuff.

    Very true. I partially overlooked that and just assumed to shoehorn them in with Kohens and Levites and use an excuse like "both are already Proximi" and "they're adopted in". I'm unsure if I wasn't thorough enough, or if there was a place for men to serve. I was going to make them sages, but that wouldn't come up for another century or so. That could work given I allowed the Qedeshah. I'm open to a better term.

    That's definitely intended to be a throwback to pre-Josiah. They're utterly henotheistic/monolatristic and polytheistic. Kedeshah as a form of sacred prostitution was gone by the time of monotheism and the banning of women in the national cult, but I kinda of mean these ones to be pseudo-radicals for the time period. They'd not only rely on the divine feminine but worship the Israelite deities of antiquity. I'm open to a better term though.

    You switch from using "Kohanim" to using "Kohens" and then back again, I'd just stick with "Kohanim."

    As a Jew I really like the writeups, your Vampire one was excellent, and this one is shaping up pretty well so far. Too often fiction presents a pseudo-Hellenistic view and a Christian view, but no Jewish view, and it's nice to see a fleshed out Jewish view that doesn't shy away from the historic schisms that early Judaism dealt with.
