Too quick summary of Napoleon's relationship with the Jews. Did he issue a proclamation pledging to establish a Jewish homeland with a Temple in Jerusalem? Why was he so positive toward Jews beyond France, but so harsh for (Ashkenazi) Jews in France? What was the point of his "Assembly of Jewish Notables" and "Sanhedrin"? Geared toward a group including people without strong background in Torah text study.
