Phil Kershner, 87, joined B’nai B’rith and the Morris I. Feld Lodge in 1952. He said proudly, “My lodge still meets to this day.”
Kershner, who now serves as the lodge’s president, used the group to develop lifelong friendships with others in the Jewish community. Along with his fellow members and friends, he became dedicated to B’nai B’rith—working hard to help it grow. From 1968 to 1980, he helped increase the number of lodges in the Baltimore area from three to 22.
Today, he is still very involved in B’nai B’rith and is also a planned giver. The interview with Kershner above took place at his home in Baltimore.
