The American Jewish Archives has acquired the B’nai B’rith Archives with holdings dating back to 1843, when the organization was founded in New York City. This move will facilitate research by scholars and will shed light to American Jewish history. Beyond its importance though for American Jewry, B’nai B’rith has a long history of international presence, especially in the “Orient” with lodges in Salonica, Istanbul, Izmir, Aleppo, Beirut, Cairo and many other cities in the Balkans, and around the Aegean and Mediterranean basin.
