Péter is from Budapest, Hungary. Born to a mixed, secular family he was raised outside of the Jewish community and the only vocally and actively Jewish presence was his old and fragile grandmother. Birthright changed all that dramatically, and today he is not only an active but a contributing member of the local community. While obtaining a degree in sociology, Péter joined small grassroots organizations that focused on poverty relief, social justice, and Jewish life in Hungary and also became active in an intiative that promoted cultural programming for Jewish yong adults. For two years he also worked in a small Jewish bookstore, as part of efforts to bring Jewish culture back to Budapest and since 2014 he has been a staff member at Haver. Haver is a Jewish educational organization that uses informal educational methods to overcome anti-semitism by bringing together trained young Jewish volunteer educators and non-Jewish high school and university students to engage in meaningful conversations about Jewish life and identity, breaking stereotypes and providing narratives to counter intolerance and hate speech. Péter is responsible for managing key educational partnerships, fundraising, volunteer recruitment, training and mentoring, and developing new educational tools and modules. He finds the work meaningful, as it gives him the chance to empower volunteers and impact people’s mindset. Péter also volunteers for Limmud Hungary, where he is responsible for volunteers and the outreach and programing for young adults.
