Tragedy and Renewal:
Story of
Hungarian Jewry
story of the Jews in Hungary
is one of tragedy and renewal.
If anything can be considered
certain, it's the fact that
things change. Today, in the
midst of an unprecedented
postwar revival, partly fos-
tered by the sweeping social
and political liberalizations
throughout the Hungarian sys-
tem, Jews as are other
Hungarians are keeping a
wary eye out for future, less
positive, developments.
Despite Hungary's newly
reforged diplomatic links with
Israel, despite the renaissance
of interest in Jewish life and
education, despite a new gov-
ernment policy which guaran-
tees religious freedom, many
people are concerned both that
the Hungarian reforms could
fail, and that anti-Semitism
could begin again to flourish.
"This is a country in the
midst of crisis," Deputy Social
Services Minister Istvan Ban-
falvy said in Budapest at the
opening of the American Jew-
ish Joint Distribution Commit-
tee's first East European
"In a country where there is
social and economic hardship,
xenophobia could increase," he
said. "We all know what tra-
gedy this brings to communi-
ties exposed to prejudice."
Said a Hungarian-born jour-
nalist: "The Hungarian gov-
ernment is all for the Jews; the
Hungarian people, no."
These concerns were echoed

Abie Nathan arrives in court

months in prison for breaking

Nathan was found guilty of
seeing PLO chairman Yasser
Arafat last year. Nathan said
he will continue seeing PLO
officials when he completes his
jail term. (APIWide World
at a seminar in Vienna on
anti-Semitism in Hungary.
The seminar was told of a
boom in Jewish education,
Jewish children's camps, dir-
ect flights between Budapest
and Tel Aviv, Jewish cultural
association activities, the pop-
ular Hungary-Israel Friend-
ship Society and other aspects
of Jewish renewal.
But it also heard that only a
relatively small fraction of
Hungary's 80,000 Jews
actually take active part in
Jewish life: most are fully
"Hungarian Jewish life did
not die, but it is very different
now and not too strorig,"
Budapest Prof. Tibor Englan-
der told the seminar.
"Both over-pessimism and
over-optimism have to be criti-
cized, he said. "Years ago,
many Jews thought anti-
Semitism had died, now many
think it is reborn," he said.
"Anti-Semitism is wearing a
mask. We have to recognize
the mask and recognize who is
wearing it."
Englander said there were
two big illusions about anti-
Semitism among Hungarian
Jews and "both are very dan-
gerous." One was that "the old
Communist regime would save
us from rightist anti-Semitism.
The second is that a new
democracy would save us from
Communist anti-Semitism."
In fact, some Hungarians
say that as Jews have become
more and more open about
their Jewish identity, overt
anti-Semitism has also grown.
One faction of the largest
opposition party, the Demo-
cratic Forum, has been
accused of being anti-Semitic,
in part because its political
roots are nationalistic, rural,
populist and steeped in Chris-
tian beliefs.
Daniel Lanyi, an activist at
the Democratic Forum head-
quarters in Budapest, denied
the party was anti-Semitic per
se. "Some of our members are
first generation intellectuals
with a rural background," he
"There probably are people
in the Democratic Forum who
are anti-Semitic," he said,
"but it's very difficult to trace
"The politics of the Forum
are very tolerant. I reject the
allegation that the Democratic
Forum is anti-Semitic. There
might be people in it who are,
but its broad politics are not."

gary had about 825,000 Jews,

cent and 8 percent of the local

Architects Meet Problem
Of Building For Sukkot
TEL AVIV (JTA) Israeli
architects designing apart-
ment houses for Orthodox and
observant Jews, especially in
Jerusalem and Bnei Brak, are
faced with a problem not
encountered by architects in
general providing space and
facilities for Sukkot.
Those who live in one-story
cottages and villas have no
problem. They merely have to
erect their booths in their gar-
dens. But it is different if the
family concerned lives in an
apartment block.
Israeli domestic architecture
is not particularly outstanding
and with few exceptions,
medium-or high-rise Israeli
apartment blocks do not rate
photographs and descriptions
in architectural journals
throughout the world.
By and large, Israeli towns
are noted for their monoto-
nous rows of flat-roofed hous-
ing blocks ranging from three
or four floors to 15-story build-
In the early days, the
facades were varied by balco-
nies stuck on to the fronts. But
with rising living standards,
many house owners blocked-in
their balconies to provide an
enlarged or extra room.
Thereafter, it was not long
before the architects decided
to do away with the external
balconies altogether and incor-
porate them inside the build-
But even where outside ba>
conies were available, observ-
ant Jews found they could not
use them for the traditional
sukkah by merely fixing poles
to the outside corners, string-
ing sheets or carpets to the
three outside sides and cover-
ing the whole contraption with
lathes on which greenery could
be laid.
Such Tabernacles booths
were not kosher, as the floor of
the balcony upstairs
obstructed the view through
the s'chach, or leafy coverage,
to the open sky above, as
required by Jewish law.
Solution found by the enter-
prising architects designing
apartments for the Orthodox
community was to stagger the
jutting-out balconies along the
This meant that the terrace
would be outside the living
room or salon on the lower
floor, outside the bedroom on
the floor above, and outside
yet another room even the
kitchen on the next story,
and so on.
By the third or fourth floor,
the balcony could again be
outside the living room and so
on progressively.
Staggered balconies provide
facilities for even the most

May Have Found
Lost Commentary
ish scholars from Yeshiva Uni-
versity, studying 15th century
Jewish documents in Girona,
Spain, believe they have found
a lost commentary by the rab-
binic sage Nessim Gerondi.
The commentary was uncov-
ered as a result of a partner-
ship between the university's
Jacob Safra Institute and die
municipality of Girona. The
project enables the scholars to
translate Jewish documents
predating 1492, the year Jews
were expelled from Spain dur-
ing the Inquisition.
"Back then, they used to
make cardboard by gluing
together paper or pages from a
book," explained Dr. M. Mit-
chell Serefs, associate director
of the Safra Institute and uni-
versity director of Sephardic
"When (archivist) Ramon
Alberch tweezed apart the
cover of one of book, he found
over 200 Hebrew documents.
One of the pages turned out to
be what we believe to be part
of Nessim Gerondi's commen-
tary," Serels said.
That commentary concerns
the Talmudic laws on the Suk-
kot holiday, and was referred
to in later writings by Gerondi
but never found. Other docu-
ments uncovered include a
dowry, and a list of congreg-
ants who owed money to the
local synagogue.

Communities flourished in
towns and villages around the
country as well as in Budapest,
although the government
between the world wars was
extremely anti-Semitic.
In the charming provincial
town of Debrecen, near the
Romanian border, for exam-
ple, an elderly man named
Lud wig lives a life of loneliness
and memory as one of only
about 250 Jews left in the
town, where the pre-war Jew-
ish population was nearly
Ludwig eagerly welcomed
some unexpected Jewish visi-
tors recently to his spacious
apartment, which stands
around the corner from both
functioning synagogues in the
town, and not tar from the
town's kosher restaurant.
"We daven every day, but it
is often difficult to get a min-
yan," he said.
Ludwig's home is crammed
with heavy wooden furniture,
and paintings cover the walls.
A piano stood in one corner
and a violin lay on a sideboard,
closed in its case.
"I'm all alone here, now," he
said in a mixture of fractured
German and Yiddish. Then he
turned to the pictures neatly
displayed on a cabinet.
"This was my grandfather, a
famous rabbi," he said, show-
ing a black and white shot of a
stern-faced man with a long
grey beard. "This was my sis-
ter," he said, showing another
picture, this time of an attrac-
tive young woman. "She died
in Auschwitz."
He counted on his fingers -
two, three, four his family
members who died in the Holo-
caust. And he found a photo-

Sukkot Has Many Lessons
Centrality of Jerusalem, and thus of
Israel, to the Jewish people is nowhere
more strongly illustrated that in the history
of Sukkot.
As we begin the celebration of the Festi-
val of Tabernacles, we are reminded of the
prophet Zecharia's prediction that all of the
world's nations will gather in Jerusalem to
worship God during Sukkot.
This festival also marks the consecration
of the Temple built by King Solomon,
whose presence today is marked both by
the outer wall remnant known as the
Western Wall and the Temple Mount on
which Arab mosques sit.
But Sukkot has developed over the cen-
turies into far more than the last of the
three pilgrim festivals associated with the
farming year in Eretz Israel.
Today, the lulav and etrog best known
of the four species identified with the
holiday are universal symbols of the joy
of observing the Torah's commandments.
The temporary hardship of living in a
sukkah always has been associated with
Thus, Sukkot brings with it the difficul-
ties in America and Israel absorbing tens of
thousands of new emigrants from the
Soviet Union, but a joy at their release
which overrides the multitude of problems.
The anti-semitism which came to the
surface during the debate over the Carmel-
ite convent at Auschwitz has been dis-
placed by the demonstrated sensitivity of
the Vatican.
The temporary setback in Israel's quest
for Palestinian elections should be viewed
in light of the increased activity on the part
of the United States and Israel in bringing
about such a vote in the territories.
Even the bitterness of the debate over
abortion, which has focused national atten-
tion on Florida, is offset by the realization
that voices and words are being used rather
than violence.
Sukkot, then, reminds us that even as we
labor together in support of Israel there is
much to be done in our community, our
state and our nation.
Women of the Wall
Seek Torah Scroll
nationwide campaign has been
mounted to purchase a Torah
scroll that will be sent to the
Women of the Wall, a group
fighting for the right to con-
duct organized prayer services
at the Western Wall in Jerusa-
Women may currently pray
at the wall, but are under a
court prohibition from carry-
ing Torahs and wearing prayer
"The Western Wall is sacred
to all Jews. It must not become
the possession or fall under the
exclusive control of any one
group," said Norman
Schwartz, president of the
Association of Reform Zionists
of America.
"The State of Israel, which
uses the Wall as a site for a
variety of national obser-
vances, has an obligation to
permit access to the Wall by all
segments of the Jewish peo-
ple," Schwartz said.

IRS Investigates:
Are Charter Banks Paying Taxes?
Service industries represent
the fastest growing portion of
Florida's economy but are
they paying the taxes they
owe? The Internal Revenue
Service intends to find the
answer to that question
starting with the Charter Boat
Because of problems in other
parts of the country, IRS reve-
nue officers have begun check-
ing the Charter Boat Industry
here in South Florida. "We
will be looking at their compli-
ance with Federal tax laws,
including Forms W-4, employ-
ment tax returns and income
tax returns," said Merlin W.
Heye, District Director of the
IRS in Ft. Lauderdale.
"The IRS is targeting the
Charter Boat Industry because
much of the income produced
is in the form of cash," said
Heye. "Also, we suspect there
is a high incidence of improper
classification of 'workers'.'
As with other service indus-
tries in Florida some Charter
Boat operators have been clas-
sifying their workers as inde-
pendent contractors. The IRS
will be interviewing owners,
partners and officers to verify
filing and payment of all
required returns. Where
employee/independent con-
tractor problems may exist the
IRS will inspect related books
and records of the company.
In keeping with the goal of
the United States system of
taxation, the IRS is seeking
voluntary filing and payment
... of the correct amount of
tax from both employers
and individual taxpayers.
Although IRS is beginning
with the Charter Boat indus-
try, other segments of the ser-
vice industry will follow.
Lvov Synagogue
Returned To
Jewish Community
World Jewish Congress
reported here that after 25
years, the sole remaining syna-
gogue in Lvov, Western
Ukraine, has been reopened
for use by the Jewish commun-
"The synagogue was closed
in accordance with the decision
by city authorities and we had
to hold illegal services in pri-
vate apartments,"Jewish
Community leader Filipp
Nyukh told TASS, the Soviet
News Agency.
In 1962 the synagogue was
closed after several articles
were published in the local
Ukraman newspaper, Lvivska
Pravda, complaining that the
synagogue served as a meeting
place for "speculators" and
other criminals.
"The Council for Religious
Affairs in Moscow treated our
request to reopen the syna-
gogue with sympathy, but
Lvov authorities continued to
impede our efforts," Nyukh
It was only following the
intervention of a local repre-
sentative to the National
Soviet Parliament that "made
the City Council return the
Synagogue," Nyukh added.
Lvov, also known by its Ger-
man name Lemberg, was one
of the old and great centers of
Jewish settlement in Eastern
Europe until the community
was all but destroyed during
the Holocaust.
