After the near obliteration of 800,000 Jews during the Holocaust, and after decades of religious and cultural repression under Communist rule, Hungary’s Jewish community of some 150,000 people, is today, experiencing a powerful renaissance today.

The JCC Budapest has become the central address for Jewish life in the heart of Central Europe, where many of our ancestors were from or lost their lives. 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 Hungarian Jews, the activities at the JCC serve as their 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 the shadows of their unexplored or unknown heritage. Your contribution and interest is all the more important at this time, as the JCC provides a haven of community and strength in the face of the right-wing political rhetoric being espoused in Hungary today.

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.
