Summary This richly illustrated history of the Jews in Budapest, from medieval times to the present day, provides a comprehensive account of their culture and ritual customs. It looks, in turn, at each of the "Jewish quarters" of the city, focusing on patterns of settlement and occupation, on biographic details and historical monuments. The book pays special attention, on the one hand, to the usage of Hebrew and to Jewish scholarship and, on the other, to the integration of the Jews into society and to the preservation of their Jewish identity.
