Tzohar wedding crisis resolved

| |

Religious Services Minister Yakov Margi and Tzohar Chairman Rabbi David Stav reached a series of understandings on Wednesday evening, allowing the Modern Orthodox organization’s rabbis to resume their wedding project.

The talks between the parties began in the early afternoon hours, concluding with a private meeting between Margi and Stav at the Knesset.

Many lawmakers and activists took part in the mediation attempts, but the breakthrough appears to have been reached by Knesset Member Fania Kirshenbaum (Yisrael Beiteinu).

The details are still unclear as a final agreement has yet to be reached, but one of the options raised during the meeting was advancing a bill initiated by MK Otniel Schneller (Kadima), which seeks to cancel regional marriage registrations. Margi confirmed to Ynet that he has no objections to this proposal.
