Jewish Hungarian hymn #hungary #general


Inacio Steinhardt
 

My late Mother born in Hungary used to sing an hymn which I, not knowing Hungarian thought to be Hatikva in her mother language.
The words that I remember ignoring the spelling went like this:

Oy ozisten ot megiget, visa hoja yerushalem mnet

Does anybody remember such a song?

Thank you

Ignacio,

 

The words are recognizable, yet with errors (does not mattet). It looks like they were like this

Ha az Isten megígért, visszahozza Jeruzsálemet

(means: If G-d promised it, he will return/bring back Jerusalem)

 

I have checked and have not found any song with this. It may have been a Hungarian Zionist song?

You asked about a Hungarian hymn.  If anyone would know it would be Keresz but could it be a line from the Kalever Rebbe's nigun...? 
Szol ha Kakas Mar?

Thank you so much for your contribution.
Now, at least I know the correct spelling and the meaning of the words that my Mother zªl used to sing.
However, I now remember one additional word that I have skipped AMIT.

Ha az Isten amit megigert viszahozza Jerzsalemet.

Does this make a difference?

Thank you again for your kindness

The hungarian words and the rhythm certainly correspond to HaTikva, as
sung in Ivrit.

Perhaps I should have mentioned that HaTikva is the Israeli natuona anthem, since no-one else has. The tune is borrowed from Smetana's Ma Vlast.  In the Zionist  groupI belonged to as a teenager, it would be sing at the end of every meeting.

Hello Everybody                                                  11th February  2021

As someone who was born and grew up in Hungary, please allow me to express how I feel about the Hungarian song: you mention
I visited Nagykallo   the Burial place of the  Kaleve Tzaddik   more than once --

In my perception, it is indeed could be the

" Szol a kakas mar  majd  meg virrad mar.
Kek erdoben  zold mezoben  setal  egy madar, de micsoda madar etc. 

Amit a Jo Teremto megigert/    whatever our  almighty G promised will be fulfilled 

I wonder, if I may mention: The  symbolical meaning of the song -of the
Szol a kakas mar--is extremely powerful.--for all of us who unwaveringly believe in the Torah 

" In my understanding, the sky opens up for a split second  sometimes at dawn --the  'special cock'  crocks in that very powerful moment when our wishes could reach?  be listened to ?  be granted?

Szol a  kakas mar  was/is  a song, from generations to generations :
in a way --from the cradle to the grave--and eternal song--

To my knowledge it is actually on you tube --the English translation varies a bit.

This is the song, which was sung by the present Kaleve Rabbi on the riverbank of the River Danube--Budapest
Remembering the Holocaust,
when the our Jewish brethren were ordered to take their shoes off ---and shut-- falling into the river Danube

There were /are some other famous Hungarian songs : like the Yiddishe Mumma etc.

Best wishes to Everybody at Jewish Gen
