The 125th birthday party of B’nai B’rith will be held in Madison Square Garden on Dec. 2 and Dore Schary, chairman of the organization’s Anti-Defamation League, will be chairman, Dr. William A. Wexler, B’nai B’rith president, announced yesterday. He said the Garden event would be the start of a year-long national observance by the 500,000-member organization. Mr. Schary described his plans for the presentation as “a showcase of B’nai B’rith in action.” He said programs would be dramatized at the Garden in sketches by well-known playwrights with leading roles to be performed by prominent actors.
