    Where is this? How close is the Hungarian version to the Hebrew or the English? I notice that the English is NOT a literal translation, as the Hebrew states:

    “They are a single integral unit, and must not be separated.”

    What is your interpretation of this?

      It’s in teh Rumbach Street Synagogue in Budapest, part of an exhibit. My Hebrew sucks, and there are differences between the English and the Hebrw, but both are literary translations of the same text. There are several more signs, to give you the whole message. I added the whole gallery.

    James 2:14-18:

    14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good[b] is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless?

    Ööö…a mondat elejében a héber felirat valós fordítása melyik, a magyar (nem lehet…) vagy az angol (can exist) ?!

    Is the Hebrewthe original? As I said, the English is NOT an accurate translation.It is possible that they meant to write “Ethics cannotexist without faith…” In which case it would preserve the meaning. would
