Sim Shalom Progressive Jewish Congregation

Sim Shalom (or Szim Salom in Hungarian)  is a member of World Union (WUPJ) and European Union (EUPJ) for Progressive Judaism. Sim Shalom, 25 years old now,  was the first Progressive Jewish congregation in Hungary, with historic Reform presence in Hungary already in the middle of 19th century.

Since 2004 Sim Shalom is legally registered as a religious congregation by the state of Hungary. Sim Shalom can accept Hungarian personal income tax 1% donations that can be made only to religious organizations.

Unfortunately, after 5 years due to a lack of funds, the community had to leave the Raday Street Synagogue in District IX in April 2016, since the community was unable to pay the rent any more. The congregation had to move part of the programs to Bálint House Jewish Community Center.
