Civil marriage for Israel?

by Maskil on 5 Aug 2007

At last! Civil marriages for Israelis! No, apparently not. This sick joke allows for civil marriages only for couples in which both partners are not considered Jewish, i.e. the Rabbinate doesn’t give a damn about them anyway!

The agreement between Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar and Justice Minister Daniel Friedmann would allow civil marriages for Israelis who are not considered Jewish by Halacha, or rabbinic law…

The civil option would be available only to couples in which both partners are not Jewish.
