Welcome to Sim Shalom Progressive Jewish Congregation!
Sim Shalom (or Szim Salom in Hungarian)  is a member of World Union (WUPJ) and European Union (EUPJ) for Progressive Judaism. Sim Shalom, 25 years old now,  was the first Progressive Jewish congregation in Hungary, with historic Reform presence in Hungary already in the middle of 19th century. You can learn more about our roots and history here.

As of 1 June, 2017 we have our programs at the Balint House, the Jewish Community Center of Budapest. (Address: 16 Revay street, District 6, Budapest)
