Destroyed by Nazis, Hungarian synagogue to reopen after 70 years
Celebrations were held last week, as the Rumbach Synagogue in Hungary reopened 70 years after it was destroyed by Nazis.
Originally built in 1872, the synagogue which lies in what used to be a Jewish ghetto in Budapest, was never fully restored after World War II.
Now complete, the synagogue will be used by all streams of Judaism and for public education, regardless of religion.
The building will also serve as the new home of the World Jewish Congress (WJC) Hungary office.
