World Travel Health Notes: by Bonnie Carroll

Just returned from Switzerland and Germany where I am always amazed at the focus on good health, as well as greeen and clean policies in process now and in ancient times. Lake Zurich has for centuries offered baths for its Swiss citizens that are still thriving today on the edge of the extremely clean river, where guests enjoy water treatments and take time to relax and renew themselves.

Women's River Bath Zurich Switzerland

Baths have been a vital part of life on the river for Europeans always, and through the years I've heard about the medieval synagogue ritual bath but was quite impressed to view the "mikvah" in the medieval synagogue in Speyer, Germany recently. It is touching to learn of the historic health practices observed in the past and know of the history of the people who held them dear as a part of their daily lives centuries ago. The ShPIRA Museum covers Jewish synagogue, cemetery and ritual bath of the Middle Ages.
