The Ministerial Committee on Legislation approved on Sunday a bill allowing residents to register for marriage in any municipality, marking a victory for Israel Beiteinu and Religious-Zionist rabbinical group Tzohar.

Currently, every couple wishing to get married must register in their town, limiting their choice of rabbi. In addition, the rabbinates of some municipalities are stricter than others, causing problems for converts and children of converts, as well as those born Jewish whose parents were married abroad.
