In the northern part of Jerusalem are the Sanhedria and Sanhedria Murchevet neighborhoods. Their names are derived from their proximity to what is known as the Tombs of the Sanhedrin.

Tradition has it that there are buried the members of the Great Sanhedrin, Jewry's highest court of law and the ultimate religious, judicial and political authority in Eretz Yisrael.
