Question
Why does it seem that Rachel, the wife of Rabbi Akiba, is not given the same or even more honor than her husband? It is because of her what Rabbi Akiva became. She suffered and sacrificed so much. Also, where is she buried? Most people go to pray with requests at the gravesite of Rabbi Akiva, not hers. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Question
I appreciate the wisdom you have shared. I have a question, not about faith, but about lineage. We see in the Bible, incredible and detailed records pertaining to ancestry. And, nowadays, this whole ancestry thing that's mentioned in the Torah has gotten so popular, either as a fad or something more serious, and many people are shelling out a lot of money to find out where they came from. My question: Are most Jews still able to trace their lineage way back, or was that just a Bible thing? Thanks
