Orthodox synagogue and meetinghouse of Pásti Street will be renovated. The money for the renovation is given by the European Union, however it requires 30 million Forints as retention.
The synagogue was built in 1984; its roofing and frontispiece were renovated in 2000. At that time there was not enough money to reconstruct the interiors, now the recovery could continue.
Tamás Horovitz, President of the synagogue said that they would like to build a cultural and scientific Jewish center that could also be an important part of the downtown.
The synagogue receives 477 million Forints for the project from the European Union. Part of the required retention came from a charity dinner organized last Sunday, where Ilan Mor, Hungarian Ambassador of Israel also participated.
