Knesset Rejects Civil Marriage And Anti-Shabbos Bills

The Knesset recently rejected two attempts to take advantage of Israel’s fragile coalition to push through anti-Torah legislation.

One was a bill proposed by MK Merav Michaeli of Zionist Union to allow family court divorces for people of the same religion who had civil marriages overseas. She argued that it was absurd to recognize overseas civil marriages, yet insist on their dissolvement by religious courts.

By a narrow two-vote margin, the Knesset rejected a proposal of Yesh Atid, Meretz and the Zionist Union to annul the Supermarket Law, in which cities cannot pass municipal bylaws permitting stores to open on Shabbos without the Interior Minister’s agreement.
