Control over the oldest synagogue in the United States, in Newport, is going unchanged for now after a federal court decision on Thursday.  The First U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a ruling to place the Touro Synagogue under the control of New York City-based Shearith Israel, which at one time had cared for the place of worship.  A U.S. District Court judge in 2016 declared the Jeshuat Israel congregation in Newport to be the rightful caretaker of the synagogue and the overseer of its artifacts, including valuable Colonial-era silver bells which had been the center of a legal dispute between the two groups.  The Jeshuat congregation says it will ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.
