Hundreds flock to rare celebration of Swiss Jewish culture

A festival in Lausanne celebrating the heritage of Switzerland’s trilingual Jewish community is drawing hundreds of people.

Like Switzerland itself, the country’s Jewish community of 20,000 is divided into French-speakers, Italian-speakers and German-speakers.
