The effort made to have the ancient synagogue of Cordova returned to the Sephardic Jews of the community have proven unsuccessful. The matter had been taken up by the Cortes and was referred to the Ministry of Public Instruction for final action. The Ministry has now ruled that there is insufficient ground for the claim and has turned down the motion.
