MAGYAR HÁZ * HUNGARIAN HOUSE

This 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.

We have 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.

Thank You.
