Tune in to this episode of our podcast, Conversations with B’nai B’rithas we delve into a fascinating, little known piece of Jewish history in the Southern United States – of course, with a B’nai B’rith connection!

Lawyer and author Marlene Trestman speaks with B’nai B’rith CEO Dan Mariaschin about her upcoming book, “Most Fortunate Unfortunates,” which explores the story of the long-shuttered Jewish Orphans’ Home of New Orleans – the first purpose-built Jewish orphanage in the nation.

More information about “Most Fortunate Unfortunates” and the history of the Jewish Orphans’ Home of New Orleans can be found here.
