B'nai B'rith International ( /bəˌn ˈbrɪθ/, from Hebrew: בְּנֵי בְּרִית b'né brit, "Children of the Covenant" )[1]

 

is the oldest Jewish service organization in the world.

 

B'nai B'rith states that it is committed to the security and continuity of the Jewish people and the State of Israel and combating anti-Semitism and bigotry.

 

Its mission is to unite men and women of the Jewish faith and to enhance Jewish identity through strengthening Jewish family life, to provide broad-based services for the benefit of senior citizens, and to facilitate advocacy and action on behalf of Jews throughout the world.

 

Although the organization's historic roots stem from a system of fraternal lodges and units in the late 20th century, as fraternal organizations declined throughout the United States, the organization evolved into a dual system of both lodges and units.[2][3]

 

The membership pattern became more common to other contemporary organizations of members affiliated by contribution in addition to formal dues paying members. B’nai B’rith has members, donors and supporters around the world.
