75th Anniversary

"Mindeddig megsegített minket az Úr" - I Smuel 7:12

On August 1, 2001 the First Hungarian Reformed Church of Los Angeles reached its seventy-fifth birthday. The following historical compilation represents a reflection on the beginning, growth and the events in the historical life of the First Church. The material is organized around several themes starting with the beginning, and concluding with our life as it is today, and our hopes for the years ahead.

There are a number people who contributed important information. An invaluable historical resource was Margaret Saltzer, our church`s former Chief Elder and Organist for many years and the daughter of one of our beloved pastors the late Reverend Antal Szab. Margaret allowed me access to Reverend Szab`s papers and notebooks, and provided a great deal of information regarding the history of our congregation, as well as church life in Hungary and in the US through the years. An amazing source of information were the previous Anniversary yearbooks - from 1941 compiled by the late Reverend Albert Hady, as well as 1951, 1956, 1961, and 1966 all compiled by Reverend Antal Szab. It is clear from these yearbooks that that both of these pastors and the congregations from these early periods made important and lasting contributions to the First Church as well as to the Hungarian community in Los Angeles and in the United States. I also drew on interesting anecdotes told to me by Mrs. Albert Hady (a founding and life-long congregation member, the first Choir Director, and Reverend Hady`s wife) in the years before she passed away, about the church`s life in the 1920`s, and later.

The Consistory and substitute Consistory members during 2001 - Piroska Castillo, Ilona Garai, Dr. Carmen Hoft, Ferenc Hudk, Ibolya Hudk, Eszter Hudk, Viktor Hudk, Helen Stefl, Adl Tth and Betty Warga - as well as friends and members of the congregation of our Church, and our pastor at the time, Dr. Bla Bnis understood the importance of a historical record like this, and expressed their support. Bill Terramorse provided a tremendous amount of assistance with the overall layout and the digital scanning of many old and fuzzy photographs. An Anniversary Book celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the church was printed in 2001 and contributing to the printing costs were The Hungarian Reformed Federation, Piroska Castillo and Bill Terramorse; Betty Warga contributed in memory of her beloved husband George Warga; Betty Warga and Pearl Kovch also contributed in loving memory of their mother Julia Dudsh and their sister Julia Stewart.

Working on the history of this church has been humbling, incredibly inspiring and filled with trepidation. It has been humbling to see the work of God in so many lives over the course of more than seven-and-a-half decades. It has been incredibly inspiring to see, with Gods grace and blessing, how much a Pastor and a Congregation can accomplish together. And it has been filled with trepidation because, no doubt, contributions from many individuals were inadvertently left out. This historical compilation is just a sampler of the life of the First Church over the decades, a work-in-progress, and not a complete account.
