Abstract

Jewry – charity – foundations: Charity in the History of the Szeged Jewish Community After the summary of the origin and history of Jewish charity, the topic of my essay here is about the charitable activities and -agencies of the Szeged Jewish Community, among these, most of all, that of the short history and activities of the Chevra Kadisha. The leaders of the religion took crucial part, not only in the religious life, but also in the field of organising charity. Surviving documents prove a very keen and active pursuit of these. One of these surviving documents is the beautifully designed Chevra Golden Book. This represents a hugely important intellectual wealth, gives invaluable data regarding the life of the Chevra Kadisha, it’s members, and of the events surrounding the death of Chief Rabbi Lipot Löw.Throughout the history of the Community, in the beginning not so much, then increasingly more and more foundations were established for the aid of the poor and needy. After the Holocaust these numbers were diminished to a minimum. (Altogether 150). There were institutions established for aid, eg. hospitals, pensioners’ homes and orphanages. Apart form establishing of the above mentioned institutions the poor had been helped by other means too. That is, gifts of money, -food- clothing items had been donated to refugees, to schools, and to the Synagogue, also mitzvo-s had been done that were simply acts of kindness. The following quite illustrates this: “When Jews talk about ‘our poor’ they are not meaning to block themselves form the universal poverty: This differentiation only means that apart form us nobody else looks after our poor.”
