Institutional Sketch

On 13 October 1843, Henry Jones gathered around him eleven like-minded men to confront what Isaac Rosenbourg, one of B'nai B'rith's founders, called "the deplorable condition of Jews in this, our newly adopted country." Henry Jones, Isaac Rosenbourg, William Renau, Henry Kling, Isaac Dittenhoefer, Jonas Hecht, Valentine Koon, Hirsch Heineman, Michael Schwab, Samuel Shaefer and Henry Anspacher had been habitually meeting in Sinsheimer's Café on New York's Lower East Side in 1843 when they decided to extend their meetings in a more formal direction. The founders originally selected a German name for their organization, "Bundes-Brueder" (League of Brothers), but they also had the foresight to have an alternative choice, "The Independent Order of B'nai B'rith" (Sons of the Covenant). These men established B'nai B'rith with the mission of "uniting Israelites in the work of promoting their highest interests and those of humanity."

The founders put aside half the money they collected during the first three months of the organization's existence for a widows' and orphans' fund. The first lodge, New York Lodge No. 1, was not actually formed until a few weeks later. Meanwhile, on 21 October, they met again and by that time had worked out their statement of moral principles. The original Preamble to the B'nai B'rith Constitution, with only slight changes, is still the Preamble today:

"B'nai B'rith has taken upon itself the mission of uniting Israelites in the work of promoting their highest interests and those of humanity; of developing and elevating the mental and moral character of the people of our faith; of inculcating the purest principles of philanthropy, honor and patriotism; of supporting science and art; of alleviating the wants of the victims of persecution; providing for, protecting, and assisting the widow and orphan on the broadest principles of humanity."

By 1855, lodges had proliferated with the spread of Jews across America, to Baltimore (1844), Cincinnati (1849), Philadelphia (1850), and then to Louisville (1852), Hartford (1852), Cleveland (1853), Albany (1853), Saint Louis (1855), and all the way to San Francisco (1855).

During its first twenty-five years, 1843 to 1868, B'nai B'rith came of age, growing from a dozen men in one lodge to many thousands in more than a hundred lodges. In the early 1850s, B'nai B'rith opened Covenant Hall in New York, the first Jewish community center, and also established there the first Jewish library in America. In 1861, Chicago's Ramah Lodge recruited and equipped a company of Jewish soldiers in response to Abraham Lincoln's appeal for volunteers, thus beginning the distinguished B'nai B'rith war service record. By the end of the Civil War, there were sixty-six lodges consisting of nearly 6,000 members.

In 1882, the first lodge abroad was founded in Berlin. Today lodges flourish in fifty-one countries. B'nai B'rith made its greatest overseas progress in Germany where there were scores of lodges totaling 14,000 members by 1933. Lodges were also founded in Cairo (1887), Jerusalem (1888), Romania (1889), and Vienna (1893).

B'nai B'rith continued to develop the organization's scope and influence during the twentieth century, particularly with regard to social welfare, both domestically and internationally. In 1900, B'nai B'rith sent $25,000 to the poverty-stricken victims of pogroms in Galicia and Russia, contributed $26,000 to sufferers of the Galveston (Texas) flood, and taxed its members to support the National Jewish Hospital founded by B'nai B'rith in Denver in 1899. Leo N. Levi spearheaded development in 1901 of the Removal Project in which B'nai B'rith played a unique role in settling thousands of immigrants who otherwise would have huddled in the New York ghetto. In towns all over the country local B'nai B'rith lodges met the newcomers and helped them become self-sustaining. The project was eventually enlarged to also help some of the immigrants long-settled in overcrowded New York to move west.

In the aftermath of World War I, B'nai B'rith undertook two major activities that saved the lives of thousands of Jews in the early 1920s. Lodges "adopted" 600 European war orphans, undertaking the support of these children until they reached the age of sixteen, or were self-supporting. The second activity was the establishment of a B'nai B'rith Mexican Bureau. In 1920, U.S. immigration laws began to close the gates of Ellis Island. Thousands of war sufferers from Europe, seeking escape from the horrors of antisemitism, were shut out. About 10,000 Jews were able to enter Mexico, but, almost without exception, were penniless, friendless and unable to speak Spanish. Early in 1923, B'nai B'rith established its service bureau in Mexico City for them, raising and appropriating a quarter of a million dollars.

B'nai B'rith in the 1920s was characterized by this new era of service. Without abandoning philanthropy and fraternalism, emphasis shifted to B'nai B'rith participation in the construction of a more positive, vital and creative American Jewish community. The organization's great youth movements began in this period. In 1923, the first B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation was established at the University of Illinois. Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA) for teenage boys was organized in 1924 by Sam Beber. The first local groups of B'nai B'rith Girls (BBG) began in 1927. The B'nai B'rith Youth Organization (BBYO) would be created in 1949 with AZA and BBG as its major components.

With the advent of the Nazi regime in Germany in 1933, B'nai B'rith's efforts on behalf of victims of oppression abroad became increasingly important. In 1934 a mass petition against the brutality of the Nazi government was drawn up by B'nai B'rith and submitted to the White House by B'nai B'rith President Alfred M. Cohen.

The election of Henry Monsky as president of B'nai B'rith in 1938 represented a significant change for the organization. He was the first "Russian Jew" to head B'nai B'rith. That same year, B'nai B'rith moved its headquarters from Cincinnati to Washington (they had been in New York from 1843 to 1905 and in Chicago from 1905 to 1925). Conferences and contacts with the government became not only more frequent but even more urgent due to the developing world crisis. The value of immediate access to information and to officials quickly became clear. From the beginning of World War II, B'nai B'rith cooperated with President Franklin D. Roosevelt's pleas for national unity by vigorously maintaining efforts to preserve and defend democracy.

As soon as news of the Nazi extermination of European Jewry became known in the early 1940s, B'nai B'rith co-sponsored a series of mass protests in all major U.S. cities, at which B'nai B'rith officials often shared the platform with prominent representatives of government, church, and labor organizations. B'nai B'rith was among the first Jewish organizations to insist that a concrete program be prepared to implement statements issued by all Allied nations. The organizations co-signed the twelve-point program for the rescue of Jews from Nazi-occupied Europe submitted to the Bermuda Refugee Conference by the Joint Emergency Committee for European Jewish Affairs.

On 7 December 1945 Admiral Forrest P. Sherman bestowed on B'nai B'rith the first citation for war service awarded to any civilian organization. On 4 February 1946, General Dwight D. Eisenhower cited B'nai B'rith similarly. The U.S. Treasury honored the B'nai B'rith Women through Mrs. Benjamin Samuels and Mrs. Louis (Anita) Perlman.

President Monsky became chair of the interim committee of the American Jewish Assembly, created as a temporary organization in January 1943 to map aid to postwar European Jewry. Out of the Assembly grew the American Jewish Conference. Monsky was one of the Jewish leaders who served as a consultant to the American delegation at the founding of the United Nations at San Francisco in 1945. These leaders participated in a united effort to convince UN leaders that the rights of the Jewish people with respect to Palestine should be strictly safeguarded.

In 1947, Frank Goldman succeeded Monsky as president of B'nai B'rith in time to preside over a convention that agreed to open its first European office in Paris. This office opened in late 1948, engaging the formidable task of rebuilding B'nai B'rith throughout Europe—a process that would be quickly complicated in Eastern Europe by the spread of communism.

As ardent a Zionist as Monsky had been, so was Goldman—and more unwavering in his willingness to turn the organization clearly in that direction. Goldman was the first B'nai B'rith president to visit Israel, in 1953. One of his immediate tasks as president was to address the crisis that arose with the change in U.S. support away from the idea of partition towards that of U.N. trusteeship, early in 1948. With the future of a Jewish state in danger, Goldman convinced Eddie Jacobson, long-time friend and business-partner of President Harry S. Truman, to appeal to Truman for a favor. Jacobson was able to convince Truman to meet secretly with Chaim Weizmann. That meeting resulted in turning White House support back in favor of partition, which in turn led ultimately to de facto American recognition of the statehood of Israel ten minutes after the latter's declaration of independence. When de jure recognition was accorded in January 1949, Jacobson, Goldman, and Executive Vice-President Maurice Bisgyer were the only invited guests to the signing of the document of recognition in the Oval Office.

In the remaining decades of the twentieth century and early twenty-first century, B'nai B'rith continued its commitment to culture and education, its support to Jewish communities abroad (especially Soviet, Ethiopian and Israeli Jews), and its involvement in domestic and international political issues. The 1950s saw an increased effort to create and expand adult Jewish education programs. B'nai B'rith Women was restructured as a national organization and programs were continued to encourage youth involvement in the organization.

Family life became a major concern of the American Jewish community in the late twentieth century. B'nai B'rith responded to this need with idea and action, continuing work through the Center for Jewish Family Life, Community Volunteer Services Commission, B'nai B'rith Youth Organization, and through many more commissions and programs. B'nai B'rith continues to offer socioeconomic assistance through its Community Volunteer Services Commission and Disaster Relief Fund to Jewish communities in America and throughout the world.

For over a century and a half, B'nai B'rith has shown concern for individual, family, community, socioeconomic, cultural, and educational needs. It has worked at local, national, and international levels and continues its work in the twenty-first century in new as well as familiar directions. The goal of Henry Jones and his associates for the Sons of the Covenant to take upon themselves "the mission of uniting Israelites in the work of promoting their highest interests and those of humanity the hope of the twelve men who convened in Sinsheimer's Café to assure a sense of secure belonging for Jews in this New World" has multiplied to encompass endlessly diverse worlds of concern and a sense of B'rith, covenant, connecting the past and the future.

Scope and Content Note

The B'nai B'rith International Archives consist of minutes, proceedings, correspondence, and audiovisual materials related to the history of B'nai B'rith as the oldest and largest Jewish service organization in the world. Included in the collection are extensive records of the Constitutional Grand Lodge and the American District Grand Lodges, which include minute books, convention proceedings, and correspondence. Of particular interest is the register of lodges, which lists member lodges by lodge number and includes founding dates and notes on disbandment of lodges. Convention proceedings cover more than 150 years starting with the first conventions held in the early 1850s through the 1990s. These are an invaluable source of information about individual lodges, regional District Grand Lodges, and their relationships both to each other and to the greater B'nai B'rith organization. Constitutional Grand Lodge minutes and proceedings give insight into social and political issues being tackled on a local and national level, while District Grand Lodge proceedings shed light on issues of importance to individual Jewish communities at different points in time.

This collection also documents the many different arms of B'nai B'rith International. These include B'nai B'rith Women, B'nai B'rith Youth Organization, the Center for Community Action, Center for Jewish Identity, Aleph Zadik Aleph (AZA), and the Klutznick National Jewish Museum. These records document program initiatives, education services, disaster relief efforts, and many other projects of B'nai B'rith International.

The B'nai B'rith International Archives also include many significant historical documents. Topics include the founding of the organization; leaders' involvement in political and social efforts; local crises such as the yellow fever epidemic; relations with U.S. presidents; involvement in the U.S. Civil War and two World Wars; advocacy for Israel, Soviet Jews, and Ethiopian Jews; along with disaster relief at home and abroad. These activities are documented not only on paper, but also in films, video tapes, audio recordings, and photographs.

The B'nai B'rith International Archives include an extensive collection of materials related to the Holocaust and the fate of European Jewry and B'nai B'rith lodges. There are correspondence, reports, publications, newsclippings, photographs and other material from the 1930s and 1940s; correspondence, legal briefs and supporting documents for restitution claims pursued by B'nai B'rith on behalf of the districts and lodges whose property was confiscated or destroyed; and copies of district newsletters published prior to the late 1930s for Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia.

B'nai B'rith International also maintained the National Jewish American Sports Hall of Fame at the Klutznick National Jewish Museum. The Sports Hall of Fame records the many and varied contributions of Jewish athletes to American sports. These include a variety of sports publications and statistics along with sports memorabilia.

Overall, the records of B'nai B'rith International provide significant insight into many social and political issues of the day, going back to the mid-nineteenth century. These issues are addressed from the personal to the international level.

Scope and Content Note: This series contains records of lodges, chapters, and units formed by men, women, and young adults as members of B'nai B'rith.
Arrangement Note: This record group is arranged in three (3) series:
Series 1. International Order of B'nai B'rith. 1843-2015. [207 Hollinger boxes, 17 oversize boxes, and 1 index card box]
Scope and Content Note: This series consists primarily of convention proceedings for District Grand Lodges 1 through 7, each of which are based in the United States. These proceedings cover more than 150 years, starting with the earliest conventions held in the 1850s through the 1990s. These records contain a wealth of information about issues facing Jewish communities throughout the United States during various time periods, insight into membership trends, and the growth of B'nai B'rith International as a communal and service organization.
Arrangement Note: This series is arranged in nine (9) subseries:
Subseries a. Constitutional Grand Lodge. 1843-2000, undated. [38 Hollinger boxes, 1 oversize box, and 1 index card box]
Scope and Content Note: This subseries contains records of the Constitutional Grand Lodge, also referred to as the Supreme Lodge. Records include convention proceedings, minutes of the Executive Committee (later called the Board of Governors), the Administrative Committee, and the Court of Appeals. Executive committee minutes from 1920 to 1950 can be found in boxes E-7 through E-12. These records provide insight into social and political issues facing the Jewish community and show B'nai B'rith International's response to these issues over the years.
Arrangement Note: Materials in this subseries are arranged topically, by committee or department, and then arranged chronologically. General records are arranged alphabetically.
