In this paper says that 56% of J1 carriers are J1a1a1a1a1a1a1. While the Cohen modal haplotype is J1a1a1a1a1a1a2.

It's exactly the same haplogroup but with a 2 at the end.
What this means is that 'Aaron' was very closely related in space and time with a man that lived 5,3 thousand years ago, that is the patrilineal ancestor of around half of Arabs and their descendants from the Muslim conquests.
