B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum® and B’nai B’rith Archives
The B’nai B’rith Archives illuminate the story of B’nai B’rith’s impact on American and European Jewish history from its inception in 1843 until the present. The archive’s thousands of manuscripts, charters, medals, letters, memorabilia and other artifacts are now accesible to researchers at its new home, Cincinnati’s American Jewish Archives.
In 2006, the creation of the B’nai B’rith Holocaust and Related Materials Collection was made possible by a generous grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. — Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education. This collection adds significant new dimensions to Holocaust scholarship.
Inquiries about the Archives can be submitted through the AJA web site, AmericanJewishArchives.org.The B’nai B’rith Center for Jewish Culture (CJC) includes the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum® and the B’nai B’rith Archives, now housed at the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati, Ohio.
First established in 1957 in the B’nai B’rith Phillip and Ethel Klutznick Exhibit Hall, the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum includes collection highlights currently installed at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion (HUC-JIR) Skirball Museum in Cincinnati, Ohio.
