The SIG is the editor and issuer of a series of publications on the history and culture of Jews in Switzerland. 19 volumes have been issued since 1992, together with a commemorative edition to mark the 100th anniversary of the SIG.

The SIG has been issuing a series of publications entitled «Beiträge zur Geschichte und Kultur der Juden in der Schweiz» (contributions on the history and culture of Jews in Switzerland) since 1992. The aim is to enhance knowledge and understanding of Jewish life in Switzerland. Topics covered include, for example, the history of Jewish communities in this country, the architecture of synagogues and the situation of Swiss Jews during the Second World War. The richly illustrated volumes trace historical developments and provide insights into the history, culture and living traditions of the various Jewish communities in Switzerland.
