Judaism & Modern Tradition
There may not be a better opportunity for the meeting of the Jewish traditions and the young generation in Hungary, than the yearly held Sziget Festival wich is one of the biggest symbols of Hungary, it has a great and attractive international potential, it’s a huge and modern cultural event, which is visited by tens of thousands of people from all over Europe.
Recognizing the opportunity right in time, a hasid branch of judaism, the Chabad Lubavitch organisation has been endeavoring to introduce the Jewish culture in an authentic form on the Civil Island since 1998.
This is a tradition itself: to acquaint the Jewish culture, history, religion and philosophy. And doing so via presentations, open discussions, quiz-filling, joined-in singing and dancing. All this in a place, which allows many an interesting, unusual encounters for everyone without reference to age, gender and religion.
