Simon Zora converted to the Syriac Catholic Church in 1804 and in 1812 was appointed archbishop of Damas. After the resignation of Ignace Michael IV Daher, accepted by Pope Pius VII only in 1812, Simon Zora was elected Patriarch on January 13, 1814 and confirmed by Rome on March 08, 1816. His patriarchate was particularly troubled because of quarrels among the bishops. Simon Zora collided with both the former patriarch Michel Daher, now bishop of Aleppo, and with the bishop of Jerusalem, Peter Jarweh. Because of these troubles, Simon Zora resigned on May 23, 1817, and his resignation were accepted by Propaganda Fide on June 1, 1818.
