MAGYAR HÁZ * HUNGARIAN HOUSE
historic, multifunctional, community and cultural center in NYC,
provides a unique and valuable variety of events, with opportunities for
Americans and Hungarians to connect.
Hungarian House regularly provides a forum for lectures on a wide array
of subjects. Some of the history making personalities we hosted over the
years include: Dr. Tibor Eckhardt, Dr. Otto von Hapsburg, Nobel Prize
winner Dr. Edward Teller, Joseph Cardinal Mindszenty, and the first
post-communist Hungarian Prime Minister, József Antall.
presented numerous films, plays, musicals, concert recitals, rock
performances and are becoming an international center for folk dancing.
In our efforts to teach and encourage the use of the Hungarian language,
we provide a home for educational programs including Hungarian scouting,
a new pre-school program, the social circle “Társas Kör,” as well as the
only Hungarian library in New York State.
Established by an earlier generation of generous Hungarian-American
sponsors, Hungarian House is maintained entirely by grants, donations
and occasional rentals. It is operated by a recently expanding group of
enthusiastic and talented volunteers who have joined us to aid in our
planned modernization and rejuvenation efforts.
Hungarian House should remain an important place for discourse, a venue
for multicultural events, an invaluable place to learn, share, teach,
entertain and be entertained. As we approach our 50th anniversary, with
your assistance, we could expand our programming and increase our
services to the community. In order to ensure the survival of this
bastion of Hungarian culture for future generations, we ask You to join
our endeavors with your financial support.
