   A report, in Yiddish, on the activities of Agudat Israel in Hungary in the period immediately following the end of World War II. A portrait of R. Yaakov Rozenheim, the president of Worldwide Agudat Israel, is at the beginning of this report. Agudat Yisrael was a world Jewish movement and political party seeking to preserve Orthodoxy by adherence to halakhah as the principle governing Jewish life and society. The ideal on which Jewish life should be modeled, in the view of Agudat Israel, is embodied in the social and religious institutions, the way of life and mores, that obtained in the Diaspora centers in Eastern and Central Europe in the 19th century. Its geographical and linguistic orientation made it automatically a purely Ashkenazi movement.
