Crown rabbi (Russian: казённый раввин, [kɐ'zʲon:ɨj rav'vʲin], official rabbi) was a position in the Russian Empire given to a member of a Jewish community appointed to act as an intermediary between his community and the Imperial government to perform certain civil duties, such as registering births, marriages, and divorces. Crown rabbis were often considered as agents of the state and not rabbis by members of their own communities because their main job qualification was fluency in Russian, and they often had no education in, or knowledge of Jewish law.
