This history of the Jews in Budapest, from medieval times to the present day, provides a comprehensive account of their culture and ritual customs. It looks, in turn, at each of the "Jewish quarters" of the city, and demography. The book pays special attention, on the one hand, to the usage of the Hebrew language and to Jewish scholarship and, on the other, to the integration of the Jews into society and to their assimilation, in certain periods.
