The purpose of this thesis is to study the historic development of Jewish schools in Hungary from the downfall of the Hungarian War for Independence to the First World War (1848-1914). i have made a study of this phase of the history of the Jewish school for many reasons. First, there is no extensive Jewish educational history of Hungary written in the English language to meet with the need of the English-speaking public. The reason for this is partly due because Hungarian Jewish educators who wrote about the development of the Hungarian Jewish school wrote in the Hungarian language, a tongue that is not generally known by scholars who are concerned about Jewish education. Secondly, I was born in Hungary where I received my basic secular schooling, also my rabbinic education which enables me to make this study.
