Got royal blood?

The Eshet Chayil Foundation is preparing to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Israel capturing East Jerusalem with a massive reunion of... King David's descendents. As we discussed a few weeks ago, that's probably most of us -- something the organizers are clearly wise to, as they are asking for 'historical data' to back up all claims... Of-course, this is utterly ridiculous as proving this is almost always a matter of tradition, and most families actually can't trace back -- with names etc. -- more than 6-7 generations (if they're lucky). Which doesn't mean they're not descended from King David. So I won't be offended that I won't be admitted...
