Want a Tzohar Rabbi for the Wedding? Avoid Petach Tikvah

The Religious Council of Petach Tikvah, located next to Tel Aviv, is generally known to give problems for couple wanting to get married by modern orthodox rabbis registered with the Tzohar organization, a rabbi told The Jewish Press Thursday.

Responding to the reported plight of a young man whose request for a certificate that he is single was rejected by the Petach Tikvah Religious Council, the rabbi, who has performed dozens of weddings, explained that the council is known for giving modern orthodox men a hard time.  He added that the rejection had nothing to do with the election loss  two weeks ago of Tzohar Rabbi David Stav to Haredi Rabbi David Lau

The Petach Council reportedly rejected the prospective groom’s request for a certificate because he opened a file with Tzohar. The Council tried to explain that the young man did not bring with him the required documents and that his wanting to be married by a Tzohar rabbi was irrelevant.

The rabbi who spoke with The Jewish Press suggested that the prospective groom travel to the nearby city of Shoham, where there is no problem with the Rabbinate.

Many Haredi rabbis on religious councils resent the growing popularity of Tzohar

  1. Eva Feld says:

    Control is control no matter how one slices it. Shalom, shalom, avail ayn shalom.

  2. The official rabbinate is making itself incredibly ugly from the point of view of all walks of people, religious and secular. If they don't clean up their act they will be bypassed completely and then they will scream that they are being subjected to secular coercion. The result will be that no one will know who can halachically get married to anyone and then everyone will have to do their own research with a private investigator, raising the costs of getting married.

  3. Joshua Cane says:

    suppose those "rabbis" got the crap beat out of them when they pull that stuff, it would stop

  4. It is, perhaps, time to discontinue the official rabbinate, and we can go back to the system in place in Maimonedes' time, when in a Darwinian fashion the wisest, most erudite rabbis of the entire world garnished the most questions, and had their answers most broadly preserved — all without the help of government support.
