Memorial Museum of the Hungarian Speaking Jewry

The Memorial Museum of the Hungarian Speaking Jewry was founded in 1986 and opened to the public in 1990, in Safed. The Museum is based on a non-profit Association with thirty founding members. The Museum depicts the magnificent past of the Jewish communities in Hungary, Transylvania, Slovakia, Carpathian-Russia, Bachka, Banat and Burgenland, and reflects their contribution to the Jewish history and World culture. The aims of the Museum are the following: to collect, exhibit and preserve all that testifies to the past, the daily life, the folklore and tradition of the communities; to single out and stress events/personalities/exhibits which are of educational value, and can serve as a platform for discussions and debates on various issues in present-day Israeli society as well; to favor inter-generation encounters.
