What Is A B'nai B'rith Lodge?

Lodge is the name given to the B’nai B’rith groups that meet in the UK, Europe and around the World. Lodge is the name that was given to the groups by the 12 Founders in 1843.

Originally there were separate Lodges for men and women. Now most Lodges in the UK are ‘Unity Lodges’ which are Lodges for both men and women. This gives the opportunity for couples to be involved together. With the exception of Edgware Women’s, all our Lodges also welcome both single men and women.

You can be certain of a very warm welcome from our friendly members, when you join any of our Lodges.

What Do The Lodges Do?

In the main the Lodges of B’nai B’rith, around the country, centre their core activities on regular main monthly Speaker meetings and activities.

The programmes within the Lodges are designed to involve, inform, entertain, to bring members together and create a group or ‘family atmosphere’ within the Lodge.

Most Lodges also have special interest groups. These interests include music, study sessions, walking groups, book clubs and Bridge groups.

The Lodges also support BBUK’s Interlodge functions, such as the Annual Quiz Supper.

Charity Work and Fund Raising

The majority of meetings have a social focus however many Lodges hold an Annual Function designed for their members and friends and to raise money for BBUK’s core charities.

Most Lodges also have smaller functions during the year to raise funds for other charities both Jewish and non-Jewish.
