Congregation Shearith Israel, of New York, the nation’s oldest Jewish congregation, said on Tuesday in a filing that it would appeal to the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in its fight over who controls Touro Synagogue and who owns a set of ceremonial bells that are reportedly worth millions.
This is an appeal to a decision that removed it as trustee of the nation’s oldest synagogue. Back on May 16th, a judge ruled that Touro Synagogue would remain in the care of the current owners.
