The Jerusalem Rabbinical Court has awarded legal and administrative custody over Joseph’s Tomb in Nablus to two rabbis who head the Shechem Ehad (“One Nablus” ) organization, which has been involved in organizing visits to the site without the army’s permission.  The decision comes despite the fact that the site is situated within an enclave with special status in the heart of Nablus, in Area A, which according to the Oslo B accord is under the complete authority of the Palestinian Authority.
