History

The Országos Magyar Zsidó Segítő Akció (OMZSA) was established in Budapest in 1939 with the mission of raising funds for supporting those who lost their jobs or existence due to the anti-Jewish laws and regulations. The OMZSA was a Neolog-Orthodox-Zionist coalition that aimed to consolidate the Hungarian-Jewish self-aid actions. Jewish public activists saw the establishment of the OMZSA as an opportunity for both self-renewal and a growing inner solidarity among Hungarian Jews.
