THE KING WAS A JEW: A little fact of the music industry is that Elvis Presley was part of the Tribe

The Tribe can claim Elvis as one of their own….


Elvis’ mother, Gladys Love Smith’s mother was named Octavia “Doll” Marsell by her mother who was a Jew named Martha Tacket who lived from 1852-1887….Under Jewish law, a person is of Jewish descent if his mother is Jewish. All Jews come through the lineage of their mothers. All mothers in Elvis Presley’s birth line run uninterrupted from the Jewish grandmother, Ms. Tacket, and then through all of his descending mothers and grandmothers. Therefore, Elvis himself is legally Jewish under the Jewish law of succession through mothers…His middle name “Aron” is a misspelling of Aaron, the brother of Moses in the Bible…After Elvis’ mother, Gladys, died, the King designed her tombstone with a Star of David on it to honour her Jewish ancestry, which was something Gladys was very proud of….Elvis learned the Hebrew alphabet and wore a piece of jewelry called a “Chai” which contained Hebrew words and the Star of David during 1977, the last year of his life. When asked why, Elvis said it was to insure going to heaven by fulfilling every possible technicality.
