Having suffered through the trauma of infernos that consumed their homes and possessions, families who lost everything in the recent fires around the country are facing one more hurdle – this one from rabbinic quarters.
The municipal chief rabbi of Zichron Ya’acov, who is also in charge of marriage licenses in Haifa, issued a statement saying a man and wife whose marriage contract was destroyed in the fires could not live under the same roof until a new contract had been drawn up.
The national chief rabbis quickly intervened, however, ruling that any couple who had lost their ketuba in the fire could continue to live together but should have a replacement marriage contract drawn up.
