The collection of folklore exhibits at the Museum of Hungarian Speaking Jewry depicts the vibrant history of the Jews living in Hungary, Transylvania, Slovakia, Carpathian Russia, Bachka, Banat and Burgenland before WWII. The museum’s founders, longtime Tsfat residents and Holocaust survivors, are passionate about preserving this rich past, returning to Eastern Europe to collect interesting pieces for the museum, from children’s books to religious antiques. If you have Hungarian family this museum has a large database of archives for those interested in doing some research.
