B'nai B'rith UK

B’nai B’rith is an international organisation, which brings together Jews from all backgrounds, with the aims of strengthening the Jewish community, combating racial and religious intolerance, and helping the less fortunate. The membership spans the whole Jewish community irrespective of religious or other affiliations. Our symbol – the menorah – is lit on formal occasions, each candle being representative of B'nai B'rith's seven principles: "Brotherhood, Benevolence, Harmony, Peace, Truth, Light and Justice".

It is the oldest Jewish service organisation founded in New York in 1843 by 12 German Jewish immigrants. Since 1843 generations of Jewish people around the world have been helping others in need through their membership and activities. It now operates in 59 countries and has official status at the UN and representation in Brussels. B’nai B’rith is a powerful voice for Jewish security and continuity and is respected all over the world.
