British Rabbinates Split on Authority
for Jewish Marriag es; Chasm Widens
LONDON (JTA) — The Chief
Rabbinate in Commission, which
administers the chief rabbinate of
Britain's United Synagogue until
the new chief rabbi takes office,
expressed "profound regret" over
plans by the Federation of Syna-
gogues to set up its own marriage
Earlier this year, the federation
embarked on a course of estrange-
ment from the United Synagogue
when the former organization an-
nounced that it was establishing
its own Beth Din religious court.
Both synagogue groups are Ortho-
Asserting that the latest move
by the federation would "tend to
undermine the integrity and co-
hesive character of Anglo-Jewry,"
the chief rabbinate pointed out in
a letter to the federation that, for
over a century, marriages in Anglo-
Jewry had been solemnized under
the jurisdiction of the chief rabbi,
and records had been meticulously
The letter warned that the
move by the federation would
jeopardize 'this unique system"
and that the chief rabbi could
not assume responsibility for any
marriage authorized under the
authority of the federation.
Replying to the chief rabbinate's
letter, a federation statement said
that the decision of its general
council to establish its own Beth
Din "arose out of the refusal of
the United Synagogue to ratify
an agreement providing for a uni-
fied ecclesiastical authority" which,
it said, had been negotiated over
many months. Marriages, it said,
were "naturally" within the juris-
diction of the -Beth Din.
The statement went on to say
that the federation saw no reason
why there should not be full co-
operation between the chief rab-
binates of the federation and the
