President of Mazsihisz and the National Chief Rabbi Held Talks with Minister of Interior of Israel

Yesterday, dr. Andor Grósz, president of Mazsihisz, and National Chief Rabbi dr. Róbert Frölich held a meeting with Moshe Arbel, the Minister of the Interior of the State of Israel on an official visit to Hungary. At the meeting, Moshe Arbel welcomed the president's recent visit to Israel, during which the Mazsihisz delegation met with the president of the Jewish State.

During the constructive meeting with the president of the Federation of Hungarian Jewish Communities (Mazsihisz) and the national chief rabbi, minister Moshe Arbel expressed his interest in the daily life of the Hungarian Jewish community, including the tasks and developments Mazsihisz is facing. He also welcomed that dr. Andor Grósz and the delegation of Mazsihisz made a successful official visit to Israel in the past few days.

Speaking about the life of the Hungarian Jewish community, dr. Andor Grósz told the minister that the Mazsihisz is the largest Jewish denomination in our country, and pointed out that after the seventh of October, the leaders of the various Jewish denominations agreed to put aside the existing differences of opinion for the duration of the ongoing war against Hamas. Moshe Arbel suggested that running the Jewish cemeteries in Hungary could be a common cause for the denominations. Reflecting on this, Chief Rabbi Róbert Frölich underlined that Mazsihisz has been maintaining some 1,500 cemeteries in the country, and as in the past, it intends to maintain these facilities under its own authority in the future as well.

At the meeting, the president of Mazsihisz informed the Minister of the Interior about the support the Federation provided to our Israeli brothers after October 7th. He added that he personally interpreted the solidarity and compassion of Hungarian Jews in Israel to several key political leaders and also to President Isaac Herzog.
