Batei Ungarin

Batei Ungarin

Batei Ungarin (Hebrew: בתי אונגרין‎) (lit. Hungarian Houses) is a Haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem. It was built by Kolel Ungarin, a Hungarian Jewish charity supporting Jews living in the Land of Israel.


Batei Ungarin was established in 1891. By World War I, there were 100 homes, a synagogue, a beit midrash and a mikveh. [1] The original inhabitants of the neighborhood came from Hungary, and many of the residents who live there today can trace their lineage to Hungary. [2] A major Hasidic group called Toldos Aharon has its headquarters on the edge of Batei Ungarin.
