Second day in Budapest- The Jewish Disrrict

ettie

Today we toured the Jewish district  with a very good guide.He was both professional and sensitive. Being at a playground where the marketplace was with no sign or anything else to remember.We discussed if there is a "right" way to remember.

Also the visit at the big synagogue was enlightning.An organ at a synagogue! Made me wonder about the different kinds of ways to be a community,what is acceptable or not...How those dicisions influence people,whether they bring them together or drive them away...

 

Lasr,but not least is the wonderful lecture we heard today from prof.Miller which was very intresting. His point about some jews finding out about their Judaism for the first time in summer camp,made me think about various roles of summer camps.Their role nowadays especially in israel is so different,it makes one think how time changes concepts.
