Hungarian Jews once faced extinction. But thanks to the support of Jews like you, the Hungarian Jewish community is again flourishing and anticipates a promising future. JCC Budapest — Bálint Ház is the beating heart of this community. 

Now is the moment to build upon our success. The JCC Budapest has the potential to strengthen not only Hungarian Jews, but to serve as a beacon for all Jewish people. To reach this larger community, we must invest in improving the JCC’s facilities and expanding its programming. 

In the midst of rising global antisemitism, the JCC is a  place for Jews to be themselves and a bulwark against hate. For young Jews especially, Judaism is a source of hope and inspiration.  At this precarious moment, our support ensures young Jews can continue to embrace their Jewish heritage, with the knowledge that they are part of a global community. 

You can play a vital role in the story of Hungarian — and global — Jewish life. As the next generation of Hungarian Jews rediscovers their heritage, you can ensure they continue to have a thriving and supportive community to share it with.
