Re: Permission for marriage #galicia

I don't know how they could restrict religious marriages when the
Jewish precept doesn't even call for a Rabbi to perform the ceremony.
Saying the words "At mekudeshet li ...." in front of a minyan is
enough for a marriage to be valid. They could only restrict the
registration of the alliance.
Actually, a minyan is only required for the 7 blessings under the
chupah. For the actual marriage itself, the minimum requirement is
for two valid witnesses.
