Official reopening of Budapest’s historic synagogue

EJP member Ferenc Olti shared a good news on the official reopening of Budapest’s historic synagogue.

Such events are extremely vital as they are the uniting powers of all the community.

The synagogue is reopening following a detailed renovation carried out in 2017-2019, which entailed the conversion of the synagogue and its entire building complex into a multi-purpose arts, culture, prayer, and education center.

Several cultural events, including online concerts, will take place as part of the inaugural celebrations.

Events celebrating the official reopening of Budapest’s historic, Moorish-style Rumbach st synagogue as a cultural and religious space after a fullscale restoration kick off today (June 10) with a public Torah procession though the downtown Jewish quarter.
