An open letter
to Gábor Keszler,
the person usurping the office of MAOIH president
As a result of your actions, the religious life of the the Hungarian Autonomous Orthodox Jewish Community (MAOIH) has been completely paralyzed today. All the religious institutions of the MAOIH headquarter and building complex in Kazinczy Street have now been closed to domestic and foreign visitors. Various renovations do not and cannot justify this. The series of closures, reorganizations, outsourcing, and renovations serve only one purpose: the power aspirations of those whose bidding you obey – EMIH, Shlomo Köves and Baruch Oberlander – that is, the absorption of MAOIH into the business church called EMIH.
The legitimate membership of the MAOIH calls upon you:
- to inform the membership, with immediate effect, exactly what renovations are taking place and planned in the three main buildings and premises of the MAOIH building complex on Kazinczy Street used for prayer in the coming months;
- to open with immediate effect (in view of the renovations) at least one of the many premises in the building complex suitable for prayer – for example the Banquet Hall or the Hanna restaurant.
