B'nai B'rith Great Lakes
The Great Lakes Region covers Michigan, Fort Wayne, Ind., and Toledo, Ohio. Most of the current activity is centered in the Metro-Detroit area, home to active units and lodges, sports leagues, as well as programs and projects conceived in the regional office.
B’nai B’rith’s history in Michigan goes back to the formation of the Pisgah Lodge in 1857. Pisgah was B’nai B’rith’s 34th lodge in the United States. Since then, thousands of Jews have been members of B’nai B’rith, helping Jews and other community members worldwide.
We welcome your membership, activity, and support of B’nai B’rith as we celebrate our 175th year of making a positive difference.
