Title translates “The Healing of the Daughter of My People: Preparations for the Congress of Rabbis on the Topic of Establishing the Sanhedrin.” Ephraim Deinard (1846-1930) was one of the greatest Hebrew "bookmen" of all time. He was a prolific bookseller, bibliographer, publicist, polemicist, historian, memoirist, author, editor, and publisher. “The Sanhedrin is traditionally viewed as the last institution which commanded universal authority among the Jewish people in the long chain of tradition from Moses until the present day. Since its dissolution in 358 CE, there has been no universally recognized authority within Jewish law (Halakha).Maimonides (1135–1204) was one of the greatest scholars on Judaism of the Middle Ages, and is arguably one of the most widely known scholars among the Jewish people. Influenced by the rationalist school of thought and generally showing a preference for a natural (as opposed to miraculous) redemption for the Jewish people, Maimonides proposed a rationalist solution for achieving the goal of re-establishing the highest court in Jewish tradition and reinvesting it with the same authority it had in former years. There have been several attempts to implement Maimonides' recommendations, the latest being in modern times” (Wikipedia). SUBJECTS: Sanhedrin -- Restoration.
