European Jewish Association

Kalman Szalai

In his current position Mr. Kalman Szalai is the Secretary of the Action and Protection Foundation, Budapest.

With a long career and expertise in managing and monitoring technology systems in the European electronics market, Mr. Szalai decided over the last few years  to dedicate his time to working with the Action and Protection Foundation.

The Foundation’s mission was the creation, protection and promotion of  a sovereign, independent Hungarian Jewish identity. Mission accomplished. The Foundation‘s board of trustees now includes significant people representing the length and breadth of Hungary’s Jewish organisations, underlining the foundation’s commitment and consensus decision making to achieving common goals.

As a part of his role Mr. Szalai is also producing Anti-Semitic hate crime and incident monthly reports in Budapest and is managing a project that seeks to help law enforcement organisations address and define hate crime.
