"Izahaz" doesn't exist; "imaha'z" means "house of prayer", i.e. a synagogue. (google is particularly bad at translating hungarian. caveat emptor.)

I've been going through Ujfeherto birth registers for the 1860s and the usual place where
circumcisions were performed was "Izahaz," which does not appear in my Hungarian dictionary and
Google translates as "meeting house." Is that correct, or is there another way to interpret
"izahaz"?
