Rift between US oldest synagogue, congregation

Published: 12.31.12, 21:31 / Israel News

A disagreement over the ownership of a set of 18th century Torah finial bells worth millions has led to dueling lawsuits between leaders of the US's first Jewish congregation and its oldest synagogue.

 

The dispute started after leaders of the Touro Synagogue in Newport, Rhode Island, agreed to sell the bells for $7.4 million to Boston's Museum of Fine Arts so they can set up an endowment to care for the synagogue. (AP)
