The United Israel Appeal plans to reopen its office in Hungary before the end of the year, according to the organization’s chairman. “The major task ahead for the Hungarian office will be to help organize Jewish education in Hungary,” said Avi Pazner, who was in Budapest for a two-day international convention of UIA, also known as Keren Hayesod. UIA opened its first office in Budapest in 1921, but it was shut down at the beginning of World War II.
