Right now (2013) there are 11 Jewish senators and 22 Jewish members of the House of Representatives.
The head of government in Switzerland is called "President". He is one of the seven "Federal Counselors" (Conseillers fédéraux), the Swiss name for Ministers.
Every year, at the beginning of December, the Swiss federal Parliament elects the President and the Vice-President among the seven Federal Counselors. The vice-president is usually automatically elected president on the next year.
The Federal Council (=federal government) is elected every 4 years. However, it often happens that one or several members of the government resign before the end of this 4-year term, in which case the empty seats are immediately renewed: the Federal Parliament then elects one new Federal counselor (or several, if several resigned).
In Switzerland, the President does not have strong powers, like in America. The country never wanted one person to become too powerful. The 7 members of the Federal Council thus remain almost equal. The President is in charge of leading the sessions of the Government. He also represents the country abroad. Besides that, he does not really have more power than any of the 6 other Federal counselors.
It is set aside and no longer considered.
