Early 18th Century synagogue in Copenhagen

Not sure if this refers to an Ashkenazi or Sephardi synagogue. The King is presumably Frederick IV. Of course, Hamburg at this time was also Danish territory.

Copenhagen, Dec. 26


The Jews of this City have desired Leave to rebuild their Synagogue; but ‘tis said the King answer’d them, that he would have all the Christian Churches first rebuilt.
