So what do these Sanhedrin members look like?



This photo accompanied an Arutz-7 story which reported that some Sanhedrin members planned to visit Har Habayis together. They did not hold a meeting on the Temple as the Yated article erroneously claims. Indeed the Wakf does not even permit Tehillim to be uttered on the Temple Mount silently, let alone an official Sanhedrin meeting. Furthermore, even the group of 50 that came was not allowed to ascend together but only in groups of ten.

Faith-in-Nathan
posted 38 pictures of the event. Take a look at the s'muchim and you tell me if it was proper for the author of the Yated article to declare: “Are they qualified to make any halachic decisions at all?”

I sincerely hope he was questioning the validity of the body as a whole and not the Torah scholarship of the individual members. More sinas chinum is not what Klal Yisrael needs today.

My sentiments exactly.
