17 Jan Weinberger Judaica
Weinberger is a lovely little judaica store in the heart of the so-called historical Jewish Quarter, next to the Kazinczy Street Orthodox Synagogue. It is crammed with observance items, ceremonial Judaica, Jewish jewellery and perfect gifts for Jewish weddings or bar / bat mitzvah or any other important religious or non-religious occasions and there is a considerable book collection with a wide assortment of contemporary and antique books: Hungarian and Eastern European Jewish literature, History books, Biographies, Guide books, Photo collections, Religious literature, Prayer Books, Israeli and Middle Eastern studies, Holocaust studies, Jewish studies, Antisemitism and many more. They also have beautiful antique crystal and silverware, paintings, prints, calendars…you can hardly ask anything they do not sell. Except offering the best judaica in Budapest, their real plus is the terrifically nice personnel. Go and try it for yourself!
