Midrashot Women: 40% Discount for Marriage Registration

Deputy Minister of Religious Services Eli Ben-Dahan recently decided to give women studying in midrashot colleges a 40 percent discount on the 700-shekel fee for marriage registration. The discount is expected to go into effect in a few months, after a professional team determines a way to verify a potential bride's student status.

The discount is already granted to soldiers, university students, yeshiva students, the blind and disabled, as well as others, including those who qualify on socio-economic grounds.
