Geza Seifert,
Hungary Jewish
Leader Is Dead

BUDAPEST (JTA) —
Geza Seifert, chairman of
the Hungarian Jewish Com-
munity for the last 12 years
and one of the foremost
Jewish personalities of
Eastern Europe, died here
May 29 at age 70.

The mass circulation
daily, Magyar Nemzet, de-
scribed him as "An eminent-
lawyer and for many years
one of the best leaders the
Jewish community had"
who "played an important
role in steering the Jews in
being faithful both to their
traditions and teachings
and to their country."
Mr. Seifert organized the
surviving Jewish commu-
nity of Hungary after
World War II. He nego-
tiated an agreement with
the state in 1948 which rec-
ognized the Jewish commu-
nity as a legal entity for the
first time in Hungarian his-
tory and explicitly granted
equal rights with the
istian church.
He was also instrumen-
tal in setting up the Buda-
pest Rabbinical School
and obtained government
approval for the attend-
- 7e there of rabbinical
dents from the Soviet
Union. There are no rab-
binical seminaries in the
USSR.
Mr. Seifert was rare
among East European Jews
in that he maintained exten-
sive contacts with Jewish
communities in the West.
He recently visited the
United States and Canada
and held meetings with rab-
bis in New York, New Jer-
sey and Montreal. He also
maintained excellent rela-
tions with the Hungarian
government and the ruling
Communist Party.
