Information on whether the government will recognize a marriage between a Jew and a non-Jew [ISR11974]

According to the Director of the Jewish Community Council in Montreal, marriage and divorce are the responsibility of Orthodox Rabbis in Israel (27 Nov. 1992). A representative of the Consulate of Israel in Toronto reported that Israel recognizes the validity of marriages between Jews and non-Jews (27 Nov. 1992). The representative further reported that all Israeli nationals have the same rights (Ibid.).

Additional information on this subject is currently unavailable to the DIRB in Ottawa.
