The ransom paying Jewish ritual Pidiyon Ha-Ben (pronounced
'pigeon a ben') has the father pay a Cohen, a paternal
descendant of the priestly family, 5 silver coins weighing a
Shekel each (or Sheqel as it should be spelled and
so that the month-old firstborn boy is free to live
outside the temple.
The Sheqel was an ancient weight, used for weighing gold or
silver and equal to 20 carats each. The Carat was an ancient
weight approximately the weight of the seed of a Carob-
These seeds were claimed to be precisely equal in weight.
Only ten percent of the Jewish babies need to go through
process according to the ritual laws, and even less ever get
chance to do so, if their parents even heard of it.
So in today's global world if the parents do choose to do the
pigeon, they need to find someone who has these silver
and buy them, then give them to the Cohen, and the Cohen

cohen was used for drug dealing or gun trading, or owned by
someone who is involved in those two fields, the bit-cohen is

Bit-Cohen Foundation goes out of business. After created
