Hungary: Jewish Group to Get State Funding

THE HUNGARIAN GOVERNMENT has signed a special agreement with an Orthodox Jewish group, granting them a status in the country enjoyed only by a small number of churches.

The accord, for example, provides the Unified Hungarian Jewish Congregation’s institutions, such as schools, the same financing given to similar state institutions.

A controversial law introduced in 2012 by Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s government tied the recognition of churches to parliamentary approval, and slashed the number of officially recognized churches from around 370 to 32.

Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen said Monday’s agreement recognized the 15-year-old congregation’s work for the renaissance of Hungary’s Jewish community.

EMIH, the group’s Hungarian acronym, becomes the third Jewish religious organization to sign a special agreement with the government.

Anything you do for a Gew is never appreciated, only EXPECTED, and it will eventually be used against all those who thought being nice to a Gew had some kind of moral reward. WRONG !
Happy Thanksgiving !

“Hungary: Jewish Group to Get State Funding”
the only funding that Jews should ever get is funding required to ship them out of your country…

They will hog up more than their fair share like they always do.
