B'nai B'rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum
and B'nai B'rith Archives

The B’nai B’rith Archives, now housed at the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives at Cincinnati’s Hebrew Union College (HUC), includes thousands of documents and artifacts dating from the mid-19th century to the 21st century, which provide a rich source of information on our organization’s accomplishments, as well as on the role played by lodges and leaders within the context of Jewish history, in America and around the world.

The B’nai B’rith Holocaust and Related Materials Collection, organized and funded by a generous grant from the Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. and the Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Research, Documentation and Education, includes correspondence, books and periodicals, directories, and maps pertaining to B’nai B’rith in Europe, Asia, Africa and the United States in the years before and after the Holocaust.

Remembered for the Judaica exhibitions mounted at B’nai B’rith’s former Washington, D.C. headquarters from the mid-1950s through the year 2001, the B’nai B’rith Klutznick National Jewish Museum transferred its extensive acquisitions, consisting of paintings, sculptures and liturgical objects in 2015 to the Skirball Museum, also located on HUC’s campus, where these artworks are now part of its permanent collection.
