JERUSALEM (Jul. 18)
Rabbis of all lands, regardless of their age, will be admitted to Palestine if the Chief Rabbinate guarantees they will not become-public burdens, it was announced here yesterday.
The new policy was announced by the High Commissioner, in accordance with a pledge given the Chief Rabbinate. Under this new ruling, 37 rabbis, who were previously refused admission, will now secure visas.
The High Commissioner, after consulting the religious communities, is planning to legislate against marriages of minors below the age of sixteen.
