Swiss Jewish Women’s Association Marks 150 Years

The Jewish Women’s Association of Bern, Switzerland, celebrated its 150th anniversary in November 2017. Chairwoman Karin Rom reports that the affiliate is actively involved in working for the welfare of members of their community, and particularly visiting older members in their homes. They organize the refreshments for Kiddushim in the synagogue and other social activities on Jewish holidays. The highlight of the year is an excursion in the summer, which is free to all members, thanks to a generous donor. With an active board and many active members, they hope to continue their activities for the next 150 years!
