The History of the Jewish Schism in Hungary

Gabor Balazs

Identity & Global Culture, Jewish History

The session offers a historical overview of the Schism of Hungarian Jewry to different streams of Judaism, and explores Jewish identity models and ideological patterns from the 19th until the Shoa (Holocaust). Understanding the historical background will help to explain the diversity of Hungarian Jewry today.
