Series Title

B’nai B’rith – Functional Files 001-084

Creator for this series

The history of B’nai B’rith in Australia starts with the institution of the first Lodge in Sydney in 1944, followed soon after by the commencement of the Sydney Women’s Chapter. Melbourne instituted its first Lodge and Chapter very shortly after this. Although, at one stage, Lodges Chapters and Units (where men and women hold equal membership) existed in each State, currently they only operate in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as New Zealand. Activities are very much modelled on the original core values and mission statements and include raising money for worthy causes, both Jewish and non-Jewish, active social and cultural activities such as lectures, art exhibitions etc. as well as a very active Anti-Defamation unit which monitors anti-semitic activities both locally and overseas and a welfare arm. The collection also contains photographicand hardcopy items from the B’nai B’rith Museum.

Series 001 – 084 shows the various activities, functions, transactions and programmes of B’nai B’rith over the decades in Australia.
