Religious Services Minister Naftali Bennett Sunday presented his reform to the marriage registration process by expanding catchment areas and canceling dozens of religious councils. Bennett and his deputy Eli Ben Dahan announced that they will be advancing the “Tzohar Law,” or an equivalent law which will cancel the regional division of marriage registration areas, which has been in use for decades. This step introduces competition between municipal rabbis and regional religious councils.
