Hungary grants Jews full civil rights, including full citizenship. Jews are simply required to organize their religious life and practices in a manner consistent with how Christians have been doing it.

The equality of Jews lasts a whole two weeks. Once the Hungarian army surrenders to Russia, which had come to aid Austria's suppression of the Hungarian revolt, the conditions for Jews are made even worse than before because they participated in the revolt.

Heavy war taxes are imposed on Hungarian Jews by their Austrian masters, and many Jews are simply executed by Austrian officials.
