Assembly of Jewish Notables

The Assembly of Jewish Notables was a convocation of rabbis and Jewish communal leaders from the communities situated in the territories of the French Empire and the Kingdom of Italy convened by a decree of Napoleon Bonaparte, issued in May 1806 to clarify the relations between the Napoleonic state and the Jews. After meeting that summer, the Assembly convened the Grand Sanhedrin in 1807 to discuss and issue decisions on questions put to them by Napoleon. The Assembly and the Grand Sanhedrin officially dissolved in 1808 with the creation of the Consistoire central israélite de France.
