According to Lavie, he named NIS 500,000 (about 0,000).The went on to reveal that the prohibition on marriages performed outside of the rabbinate stems from Ottoman law, but that the criminalization of the act was only introduced two years ago as a last-minute addition to the Tzohar Law.However, the defeat of the amendment pushed the Jewish lawmakers who proposed it, into making the prison sentence punishment aspect of the law public.Critically, the Jewish lawmakers who tried to amend the existing law were not seeking to repudiate the ban on Jews marrying non-Jews.
“[The amendment] opens a door so that tomorrow the state can jail anyone who won’t go to the mikveh [ritual bath], or who won’t have their sons undergo a brit milah [circumcision].” Lavie’s proposed law would maintain the criminal aspect of weddings performed without registering the marriage.
The hypocrisy is clear: Jews and Jewish pressure groups are the first to scream “anti-Semitism” at any suggestion that any other group might have the right to protect its identity, but they all fanatically support Israel, which has laws making it a criminal and prison offence for a Gentile to even marry a Jew.
Israeli marriage law makes it a two-year prison offence for any Jew marrying outside of the rabbinical authorities in that country, it has emerged after a failed attempt to overturn the rabbinate’s authority in the Israeli parliament.
While it has long been known that the Jews forbid marriage between non-Jews and Jews in Israel, the existence of the prison term as punishment for breaking this law has effectively been kept under wraps until now. According to that paper, the proposed law amendment sought to decriminalize marriages performed outside the auspices of the Israeli chief rabbinate, was defeated in a 32–25 vote in the Knesset.
However, instead of a jail term, the couples—and those who perform their weddings—would face a fine, the added.
In conversation with that newspaper, Lavie said that ahead of her new attempt to pass the proposal Wednesday she asked former Religious Affairs deputy minister Eli Ben-Dahan for an appropriate amount for a fine.
