Israeli Cultural Institute
In September, 2010 the Israeli Cultural Institute opened its doors in the capital city.
Mainly concerts, exhibitions, language courses, film screenings, meetings are organized in the institute which is located in Paulay Ede Street, the audience consists of Hungarians and Israelis alike. The range extends beyond Jewish culture: from a religious point, Israel is a mixture of Muslim and Christian ethnical groups, as well as other nationalities and groups. That means a mosaic-like culture and the Institute wishes to represent it as completely as possible.
The founders of the Institute desires to show both Israel’s and Hungary’s being open-minded and receptive areas, together with the exciting culture of Israel and its ordinary people and experimental artists who are inspired by the birth of modern life in an ancient land. The foundation itself is a result of cooperation: the founders are not only individuals, but Jewish people from all over the world and an organization (SZOCHNUT), that deals with Israel’s relations all over the world. The Institute is not only open and recepient, but also apolitical. It includes communities, clubs, associations without any hesitations if their action is consistent with the mission of the Institute.
