Where Solomon’s Temple stood in JerusalemA Sultanic decree issued in Istanbul and addressed to both the governor and the judge of Jerusalem, the Jewish community residing in Jerusalem sent a petition to the Sultan requesting his intervention to put an end to the attempts of the local Muslim authorities to levy unauthorized fines.  This was done upon the false allegation that they turned some of their houses into formal places of worship, and although they lived in a Jewish neighborhood they were also accused of raising their voices in prayer and thus disturbing the Muslims at their prayers.  An undated legal opinion is appended to the decree ruling that Jewish worship of God and reading of the Torah should not be interrupted by the authorities as long as they do not raise their voices in public.
