I am grateful to Steve Caruso for pointing out the announcement in Biblical Archaeology Review that the Israel Science Foundation will be funding the digitization of Mandaic texts currently in Israel. Hopefully more information will be forthcoming about what manuscripts they have in their possession! The ultimate aim is to produce a much-needed new Mandaic lexicon. Currently the only thing in existence is the out-of-print volume by Drower and Macuch.
Congratulations to Matthew Morgenstern and everyone else involved in this project! All who study the Mandaeans and their language and literature rejoice with you!
