Message from the President and Chief Executive Officer
Reminiscing about 2016 for the creation of this annual report has been a truly profound and rewarding experience. The breadth and depth of our commitments are sources of great pride and inspirations to continue on our mission.
We know so many rely on our vigilance.
Through the combined efforts of our subject matter experts and our dedicated volunteer leaders, B’nai B’rith International is able to focus on the issues that matter to you:
Supporting Israel; speaking out against a United Nations that continues to have one set of rules for Israel and one for all other countries; aggressively combating a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement that marginalizes and delegitimizes Israel; working to rectify the lack of safe and affordable housing for low-income seniors; helping communities rebuild after a natural disaster; emphasizing tolerance and diversity to children; and so much more.
From the roots planted at our founding 173 years ago, we have launched so many endeavors vital to social justice, to Israel and to humanity. With our global presence and our personal and deep contacts at global seats of governments, we are uniquely positioned as a prominent voice around the globe.
Working together, we focus on the problems facing Israel and Jews worldwide, and we value our role as a global humanitarian guardian.
You place your trust in us in so many areas vital to the greater good. We don’t take that lightly. We are honored and humbled by the faith you place in us to speak out and speak up, to ensure your voice is heard.
Read about our work here. And know that with each effort, we renew our sense of purpose.
