Abstract

Hungarian feasts – Jewish festivals – historical parallels. The Narrative of the Millennial Oration of the Chief Rabbi of Szeged, Immanuel Löw, given in the marketplace of Horgas on 3rd May, 1896 Immanuel Löw, the chief rabbi of the town of Szeged and its surroundings, as part of the millennial celebrations, hold his oration in the marketplace of Horgos (situated in today’s Serbia) on 3rd May, 1896 due to the fact that the local synagogue could not host the huge audience that was eager to listen to him. The year of 1896 meant a double feast for the Jews of Hungary: celebrating the foundation of the Hungarian state was preceded by the adoption of the so-called reception law declaring Jewish religion equal with the Christian religion, (Article XLII/1895), which completed the work of the Jewish emancipation that started in 1867, and sealed the process of legal reception. The value of the reception and its importance increased significantly in the millennial atmosphere thanks to the reception law that provided the necessary base 158for the Hungarian Jews to celebrate the anniversary of the foundation of the state feeling as an integral part of the nation. The collapse of the wall of legal separation added a special symbolic meaning to the millennial celebrations. Following the implementation of the reception law, the millennium became the “feast of brotherhood”, the symbol of the start of a new era, that was reflected mainly in the changes of self-identification of part of the Jewry. The year of 1896, the year of the millennium was a watershed in the life of the Jews of Hungary, although it was not so obvious at that time. The longing for, and the belief in the Hungarian fraternity on the one hand, the appearance of its counterpart, the political Zionism on the other, show the different roads and junctions of the Hungarian Jewry at that time. Analyzing of the oration of Rabbi Löw can be interesting from more points of view: the content of his speech is a brilliant example of the symbolic change in the relation of the Hungarian Jews to the nation, and of making it transparent.
