Order, issued by the Danish Chancellery to the Representatives of the Jewish Community in Copenhagen [Present-day Denmark]: “All the ministerial business of the Mosaic religion in Copenhagen, such as marriages and what is to be done about divorces under Mosaic law, falls to their rabbi; whereas the wedding ceremonies of the Mosaic faith in Zealand, but outside the capital, are to be officiated by the religious teacher employed by the above-mentioned faith community here in the city.” [Researcher’s note: Zealand is the largest Danish island; its most prominent city is Copenhagen, the nation’s capital.]
