Help change the odds.
Donate to Friends of JCC Budapest today.
After the near obliteration of 500,000 Jews during the Holocaust, and after decades of religious and cultural repression under Communist rule, Hungary’s Jewish community of some 100,000 is experiencing a powerful renaissance today.
The JCC Budapest has become a central address for Jewish life in the heart of Central Europe. A dynamic venue for people of all ages, the JCC’s values and programs are guided by the needs of the local Jewish community; for many Jews, the JCC serves as a first exposure to Jewish culture and community. Infused in everything at the JCC is a desire to make Judaism a source of joy and pride.
Jews in the United States and around the world can play a vital role in this story, as newer generations of Hungarian Jews emerge from behind the shadows of their unexplored heritage. Your contribution and interest is all the more important at this time, when the JCC provides a haven of community and strength in the face of anti-Semitic rhetoric and and public action.
Your gift of $180 makes you an International Friend of the JCC Budapest and underwrites JCC membership for an elderly person or Holocaust survivor, enabling them to find community and care.
Please let us know if you would like to make your donation in honor or in memory of a loved one, to memorialize a personal life event, or to learn more about naming opportunities at the JCC Budapest.
THANK YOU for joining us in our efforts to build meaningful and sustaining connections with Hungary’s Jewish community.
