Jewish community in Basel?

Hello-
We will be relocating to Basel next summer, and are wondering if there is any Jewish community to speak of? We aren't religious in any way; rather we observe from more of a cultural / holiday celebration perspective. I recognize that there are very few native Swiss Jews, though thought there might be a community given how large an expat population Basel has. Thanks!

If you are not very observant, you may feel more at home with the liberal community in Basel.

They seem fairly active and have an English language website.
(But their website is currently taking an eternity to load...)
