Founding Members of the Board


Chairman of the Board of Trustees, member of the governing body at Unified Hungarian Israelite Community

There are few issues that unite the Jewish people in a common cause. The struggle against anti-Semitism is certainly one of these. The fight against anti-Semitism, galvanizing support for a common cause,  and consensus building are all important to me. The Action and Protection Foundation is able to unite  and organize these energies in ways which have a meaningful, positive, real-world impact.


Member of the governing body of MAZSIHISZ (Hungarian Jewish Community), member of the Board of Trustees

As a former chairman of MAZSIHISZ (Association of Hungarian Jewish Communities) and founding member or initiator of several Jewish organisations I emphasized co-operation and dialogue between communities and organisations. Organization of these efforts was successful due to open communication and consensus from the communities regarding these initiatives. This high-standard of co-operation that will make the Action and Protection Foundation successful.


Leader of Szim Salom P.ZS.H., member of the Board of Trustees

The Action and Protection Foundation is the first Hungarian Jewish organization to target representation of the entire Hungarian Jewish community; those who suffer discrimination or physical harm because of belonging to the Jewish Community. Therefore it is an honor for me to participate in this work.



Member of the Board of Trustees

The Action and Protection Foundation should help and protect those who wish to live here despite the uncountable atrocities experienced by the Jewish community during our country’s history. We must do our best for the Jewish community to feel safe and at home in their own country. We should educate more and help people overcome their prejudices to understand that people of Jewish background are proud and productive Hungarian citizens who wish to contribute to the progress of Hungary as any good Hungarian citizen would. We should eliminate fear engendered by the forces of gloom, prejudice, and ignorance.



Member of the Board of Trustees

I personally found it extremely important to actively help and be involved with the everyday work of the Action and Protection Foundation due to the increasingly offensive environment that the Jewish community in Hungary faces. I believe that the Foundation is perhaps the best initiative of self governance and self protection.
