Viktor Orbán greeted Hungarian Jews on the occasion of the Jewish New Year

Thanks and attention! These words came to mind when Prime Minister Viktor Orbán personally greeted the Magyarhoni Zsidó Imaegylet and members of the Jewish community in Hungary in a festive letter today, on the occasion of Hasána Rós, that is, the Jewish New Year

– Tamás Róna, president of the Magyarhoni Jewish Prayer Association (ZSIMA), reported on his social media page in response to the Prime Minister’s greeting. Viktor Orbán greeted Tamás Róna, ZSIMA and Hungarian Jewry on the occasion of Rós Hasána, or the Jewish New Year.

The purpose of ZSIMA is to promote the practice of the Jewish religion, and to support all activities that can make the coexistence of mainstream society and Hungarian Jewry harmonious.
The chief rabbi shared the Prime Minister’s greeting with the following words on his social media page:

I consider the attention of Viktor Orbán and the Hungarian government he represents to the Hungarian Jewish community to be an unprecedented gesture that should be followed!

Thank you very much!

During the two-day holiday, the Jews commemorate the 5783rd anniversary of the creation of man and, as it were, renew their covenant with the Eternal. Then begins a ten-day period, the ten days of repentance, which lasts until Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. This year, the holiday starts on the evening of Sunday, September 25 and lasts until the evening of Tuesday, September 27. Most people go to the synagogue on the first day, try to listen to the blowing of the shofar, which wakes up the soul to look back and examine the past year.
