Question
My grandparents davened sefard. They were born in Kishvarde, Hungary and were frum jews. Did all hungarian jews daven sefard? thank you sari
Answer
Shalom, Originally all Ashkanazi Jews prayed nusach Ashkanaz. After the Hassidic movement spread through Europe many communities started praying nusach Sefard. In some places this took hold more strongly than others, and Hungary is one area where it was very widespread. Still, it would be hard to say that all Hungarian Jews made this change. Blessings.
