This month, B’nai B’rith International is celebrating its 170th birthday, a remarkable milestone when both the longevity and the impact of the organization are considered. B’nai B’rith has evolved to meet the changing needs of the three different centuries we have touched.
Our name is older than many major institutions still around today. The New York Times, Major League Baseball, Coke and the Red Cross are all B’nai B’rith’s junior.
B’nai B’rith has made an indelible impact across the globe. We are a steadfast advocate for Israel, we assist victims of natural and man-made disasters, we support seniors through advocacy on vital health issues, we are the largest national Jewish sponsor of low-income housing for the elderly, we fight for the rights of Jews worldwide. With a presence at the United Nations from the world body’s inception, B’nai B’rith’s enduring commitment to human rights continues. Through our vast scope of issues, our work is rarely matched.
