Kingdom of Hungary

   Hungary, the most diverse national and religious state in Europe, became home to the second-largest Jewish population on the continent, numbering almost a million on the eve of World War I. It was a young Jewry, composed of a few thousand persons at the beginning of the eighteenth century; however, 200 years later it had developed a unique, recognizable character. This was all the more striking because of the community’s internal diversity. It was the product of two waves of migration of Jews from Central and Eastern Europe who retained their distinctive dispositions. In time, Hungary became the arena of an acute religious conflict between Orthodoxy and the local variant of ReformNeolog—unmatched in intensity elsewhere. In the last third of the nineteenth century, a significant proportion of Hungarian Jewry, including even sectors of Orthodoxy, fervently assimilated the Magyar language and culture, and passionately identified with Hungarian nationalism.
