From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Batei Ungarin (Hebrew: בתי אונגרין, lit. Hungarian Houses) is a Haredi neighborhood in Jerusalem. It was built by Kolel Ungarin, a Hungarian Jewish charity supporting Jews living in the Land of Israel.
Batei Ungarin was established in 1891. By World War I, there were 100 homes, a synagogue, a beit midrash and a mikveh. The original inhabitants of the neighborhood came from Hungary, and many of the residents who live there today can trace their lineage to Hungary. A major Hasidic group called Toldos Aharon has its headquarters on the edge of Batei Ungarin.
