The Jewish Community of Switzerland

By Luther Rothschild

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Welfare, September 1948

This piece covers the Jewish community in Switzerland. There are 27 different Jewish communities in Switzerland, some of which are very small. These communities are affiliated with the Swiss Federation of Jewish Communities. Membership in the communities is not mandatory and the communities are more or less equivalent to associations. There is a problem as to the training and education of young displaced persons living in Switzerland, since there is a shortage of teachers outside the Jewish communities. The piece concludes by affirming the need for a development by which not only aged and sick people who are in need of permanent assistance can remain in Switzerland, but also young people who are able to work.
