Many functions of the Sanhedrin require the group of rabbis descended from an unbroken chain of Semicha from the time of Moshe.
For example I read in Eliyahu Ki Tov's Sefer Hatoda'ah that sanctification of the new moon (Rosh Hodesh) is only done by such a Sanhedrin.
I assume that at this point, we have no way of knowing which rabbis have this chain of semicha.
Thus, when the next Temple is built and a Sanhedrin is re-established, how will they be able to fulfill their duties without this requirement? Or, will, for some reason, this requirement no longer be needed?
