B’nai B’rith International has issued the following statement:
Dennis W. Glick has submitted his resignation as international president of B’nai B’rith. Glick resigned for personal reasons.
Glick, who was elected president in December 2009, has been involved with B’nai B’rith for more than 40 years.
During that time, he held a variety of posts within B’nai B’rith, including treasurer and chairman of the B’nai B’rith Youth Commission. B’nai B’rith thanks Glick for his many years of service and devotion to the organization.
Allan J. Jacobs, of Lake Forest, Ill., the current chairman of the executive committee, will serve as interim president until the B’nai B’rith International Board of Governors elects a new president in May during an already-scheduled board meeting.
In more than 45 years with the organization, Jacobs has held many roles including senior vice president and treasurer.
