Sanhedhrin update

Good evening.

Today I discovered two more articles on the proto-Sanhedhrin. (My apologies in advance to those of my readers who do not read Hebrew.) הסנהדרין: לחדול מהתוכניות השוללות את הזכויות הריבוניות של היהודים בארץ ישראל reports them reaffirming Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel denies the right of the government to give any of it away. (This is nothing new.) הסנהדרין קרא לוותיקן להשיב עתיקות יהודים שמוצאן מארץ ישראל notes them calling upon the Vatican to return all Jewish artifacts in its possession. There have long been rumors that the Vatican has in its archives the Menorah (Candelabrum) and other items from the Second Temple that were carried off to Rome by Titus; even if false, it would be interesting to know what really is there.
