(USA) Bnai Brith Transfers Its Archives to the American Jewish Archives

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

Last June Bnai Brith archives and its Holocaust collection were transferred to the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati,Ohio. It is a discreet collection and not merged in with the other collections at the American Jewish Archives.  Bnai Brith was the first national federated benevolent organization in the United States--it traces American Jewish history from the 19th century into the 20th century--from all facets of American Jewish community.
