      Ministers Endorse 'Tzohar Law'


      A bill to cancel regional marriage registration was endorsed, Sunday, by the Ministerial Committee on Legislation. The proposal has been called the Tzohar Law because of its origin in the Tzohar rabbinical organization.

      Housing Minister Uri Ariel voted against the measure, claiming the problem that the law addresses should be changed within the regulations of the religious councils and a not by a law which is not enough.
