he synagogue of
Lausanne is a striking
sight. It's an elaborate
Romanesque building domin-
ating a corner on a main
street. Tourists often stop to
admire the graceful stone
building with the large Star
of David on its facade.
"When 'visitors see the
synagogue, they are really ex-
cited and enthusiastic
because it has such a
beautiful design," says Jac-
queline Nathan, a city tour
guide who often shows
visitors — Jews and non-Jews
alike — this distinctive
synagogue.
Mr. Nathan leads the way
into a large sanctuary with a
domed, painted ceiling, stain-
ed glass windows in vibrant
colors, and carved wooden
pews, with seats enough for
500 worshipers.
The synagogue is just one
example that Jewish life is
thriving in Switzerland's fifth
largest city. Besides their
house of worship, the Jews of
Lausanne — which is about
an hour from Geneva in
southern Switzerland — have
a Jewish community center, a
kosher butcher, a Jewish
home for the elderly in near-
by Vevey, and varied Jewish
organizations ranging from
youth groups to women's
organizations.
Lausanne's Jewish popula-

tion has been increasing, par-
ticularly since the city at-
tracts many Sephardic Jews
from North Africa. And for
good reason. Situated on the
shores of Lake Geneva, the
largest lake in central
Europe, it is built on five hills
overlooking the lake.
Among its attractions are
vistas of hills and lake, a
decidedly French ambiance, a
history going back to the
Stone Age — and besides all
this, an active Jewish life.
For tourists, too, it has
much to offer. The lively
lakeside area known as
Ouchy has restaurants with
outdoor dining; a port for
boats that cruise the lake;
and hotels like the Beau
Rivage Palace.
Set on nine acres of lush
gardens, the 120-year-old
hotel is steeped in Old World
charm, though it has modern
convenience, too. At the Beau
Rivage, there's always the
chance for tourists to catch a
glimpse of a bar mitzvah or
wedding reception, since this
is a popular place for Jewish
celebrations.
Just up the hill from Ouchy
is the center of Lausanne,
with its historic old town and
its animated pedestrian-only
shopping street. The hilly and
cobblestoned rue de Bourg is
lined with boutiques and
stores, including a number
which are Jewish-owned. In-
novations, a branch of
Jelmoli, the popular Swiss
department store, has a
