Dr. Schneirson, who is well versed in both rabbinic and civic law, will have an office in Tel Aviv for persons seeking advice regarding matters before the religious courts. Her services, which will be free, will pertain mostly to matters of personal status over which the rabbinical courts have exclusive jurisdiction.
