A new synagogue was inaugurated on Sunday in the Orthodox Jewish Elderly Care Home in Budapest’s 12th district.

The synagogue in Alma Street has been built with state support of 450 million forints (EUR 1.25m).

Addressing the opening, Miklós Soltész, the state secretary for church and ethnic relations of the Prime Minister’s Office, said Hungary’s Jewish community had strengthened, enriched and protected the nation.

Referring to the tragedies of WW2, he said: “In January 1945, Russian soldiers were only minutes away from reaching the elderly home near Janos Hospital, so were unable to stop members of the Nazi Hungarian Arrow Cross from murdering its residents and nurses,” Soltesz said.

“We are here today to heal that tragedy with the inauguration of the synagogue,” he said.

  1. That must be the Regime’s way to support their ” we are not anti-semitic “ fairy tale. In fact, several openly anti-semitic “ intellectuals “ have been given government awards during the past ten years.
    Truth is, Hu regime hates the Jews, it does nothing to stop anti-semitism, actually it foments it in all possible ways, including the most stereotyped ones ( see the Soros obsession, labeled as “ Jewish p.. “ by Fidesz fans.)
    Regime’s actual attitude is: we hate the Jews, we love Israel ( but only as long as PM there is corrupt Netanhyahu, Orban’s second best friend abroad after Putin ) and its money.
