B’nai Brith to Publish History of Order

The Executive Committee of the B’nai Brith has accepted a plan for compiling and publishing a history of the Order and of the various district grand lodges. Since the work of the B’nai Brith is closely connected with the life of the Jews in America, and all their activities for the last fifty years, such a history is considered of great Jewish national interest.

Steps to inaugurate new lodges at Manila, Havana and Amsterdam have been taken by the Administration Board of the B’nai Brith. The same board has already granted charters to new lodges in

Switzerland, Przemysl, Poland, Cottbus, Germany, Haifa, Palestine, and Aschaffenburg, Germany.
