Dear Hungary, Land of Magyars, I hope you are well and Spring has made the land green. I am writing for a sensitive matter. The man George Soros is a Hungarian citizen and no one wants ill to befall a fellow citizen. However Mr. Soros' activities in the United States has caused DESTRUCTION and DEATH. I do not know what Soros has done in Hungary, that is why I say it is sensitive. The state of THE PRESS has made their reports unreliable, at best. SO if he has done wrong in Hungary and authorities have arrested him. At Hungarian APPROVAL! We would like extradition of George Soros after he has served Hungarian Justice. My city, Cincinnati, Ohio has had destruction of property and people injured by AGENTS under Soros' pay. Other parts of United States, homes of proud Hungarian immigrants have been harmed. I am writing as a citizen and I wish my government was doing this. BUT their attention is occupied. Thank you for your time and patience. An old friend had her Hungarian grandmother visit the United States in 1960's. They went to grocery one day to make Hungarian food. The Grandma didn't get pass the oranges, apples, bananas BEFORE CRYING AT ALL THE FOOD. Grandma was used to Stalin's economy. Manager of store gave Grandma a FRUIT BASKET. She nearly passed out. I hope Hungary has bananas and oranges in stores now. Thank You.

My uncle, Reverend Gabor Csordas would have been 100 years old this year. He founded the Hungarian Reformed Church in Manhattan in 1958 and served as that congregation's pastor until his death in 1992. The attached video is the story in his words of that church’s founding and building. As a longtime dean in the Hungarian Reformed Church of America, he was a leader in a denomination when there were over 60 churches and 10,000 members in the US. For years he broadcast religious and political messages over Radio Free Europe to Hungary and was a staunch foe of the Communist takeover of his native country. In the United States, he helped many Hungarian refugees and other emigres resettle. He started his pastoral duties in Kiskunhalas, Hungary as an assistant minister to my mother’s Great-Uncle, Rev. Benjamin Van, known for his insightful sermons. Nagybátyám, Nt. Csordás Gábor, lenne 100 éves az idén. Ö építette a Magyar Református Templomot, Manhattanbe 1958-ban, ahol szolgált élete végéig 1992be. A csatolt videón, nagybátyám elmondja saját szavaival a templom történetét és építését. Éveken át, Esperes lelkésze volt a Magyar Református Egyháznak Amerikába, amikor még 60 egyházak voltak, 10,000 egyház tagokkal. Éveken át, Szabad Európa Rádión hallódták prédikációit. Nagyon ellenezte a kommunista rendszert a szülőhazájában és sok magyar menekülten segített az új országba letelepedni. Kiskunhalason kezdte a lelkészi hivatását, mint Nt. Ván Benjámin segéd lelkésze (aki Édesanyám Dédnagybátyja volt).
Can someone tell me how long it takes to get a Hungarian passport renewed in New York? Thanks!
