      Religious Services Minister to Determine Chief Rabbinate Council Certification Fees

      The Knesset Committe for Internal Affairs and the Environment, headed by MK Miri Regev, approved the second and third readings for the Chief Rabbinate Bill.  The deliberation was led by MK Zevulun Kalpa.

      The bill authorizes the Minister of Religious Services to prescribe fees for various certification tests which are conducted by the Council of the Chief Rabbinate, such as certification to serve as the Rabbi of a particular city, or as a dayan (a judge in cases of Jewish law).
