B’nai Brith Establishes Graed Lodge in Palestine

A congress of Eastern Lodges of the Independent Order B’nai Brith has just been concluded here. The Grand Lodge d’Orient comprises the B’nai Brith Lodges of Turkey, Bulgaria, Serbia, Greece, Egypt, Palestine and Syria. Mr. Joseph Neigo presided.

Prior to 1914, a congress of the Eastern Lodges was held every two days. The present congress is the first since the war.

It was agreed to ratify the decision of the Executive Committee of the Order to establish a Grand Lodge in Palestine to be known as District Grand Lodge No. 14.
